Hypertension treatment logic

I am a 52 year-old male with high systolic blood pressure (around 150/80-90). For a year I've been on 10 mg of Lisinopril (an ACE inhibitor) which didn't make much difference; my doctor thus raised the dose to 20 mg, which also isn't making much difference. The doctor is now recommending that I add another pill into the mix, making a "combination treatment" which I believe it standard. What I don't understand, and what nobody has been able to clearly explain to me, is the logic of continuing to take, every day, 20 mg of a pill that has been proven not make a difference. What's the thinking behind this, rather than simply trying out a one-pill solution that might make a difference?
