Yes, he can take ibuprofen for short-term pain while taking lisinopril and HCTZ. There are no significant interactions with this combination.

The only concern would be that, in the first few days after surgery, some doctors suggest avoiding ibuprofen because of its potential to cause bleeding. But after the first day or two, it is usually fine.

Talk to your dentist if you have concerns.
