Public Citizen petitions the Food and Drug Administration to place black box warnings on all ACE inhibitors, ARBs, and aliskiren, warning against the use of the medications in combination with one another. The drugs, given individually, are effective in treating high blood pressure, but when used in combination, cause life-threatening side effects with no added benefit.
