Yes, it is safe to use the medication together but it is important to inform your doctor about any side-effects. Mecardis is generally very good high blood pressure medication and it protects the heart. Ziak is an ACE inhibitor and the only severe side-effect is a constant chronic cough. It is good practice to combine anti-hipertensive drugs to achieve the optimal positive effect.
