```I don't think ConstrainedMin will do what you want. When you use it in
Mathematica version 5 you get a message telling you it has been superseded
by Minimize. Checking the documentation for ConstrainedMin
(http://documents.wolfram.com/v4/RefGuide/ConstrainedMin.html) and for Minimize
(http://documents.wolfram.com/v5/Built-inFunctions/AlgebraicComputation/Calculus/Minimize.html)
reveals that Minimize does the sort of thing you want.

Minimize[x + y, {x > 5, y > 5, 3*x > 5*y, x \[Element] Integers, y
\[Element] Integers}, {x, y}]

which gives

{17, {x -> 11, y -> 6}}

It appears that in the current implementation of Minimize you have to
constrain y to be integer as well.
