Weightlifting with High blood pressure, high cholestorol

Patient: I’m currently taking 20mg Lisinopril for high blood pressure and 20mg Simvastatin for high cholestorol. Can I safely take muscle building supplements such as creatine, amino AKG or beta alanine?

Doctor: You would be safe with all the supplements you listed minus the creatine. I am not a big fan of creatine as I have seen many patients with very major kidney problems from it. Hope this helps
