Can you take a Beta blocker and an Ace inhibitor at the same time?

And is this recommended or widely praticed for people heart patients or people with high blood pressure? It's not a combo I hear of too often.
Update: I was told that after a heart attack, both these drugs should be given. The betablocker to help the heart with oxygen and the Ace Inhibitor to "shape" the heart. So it kind of suprised me that you could take these too drugs together.
