More Info on Interactions With Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide
Potassium-Sparing Diuretics (Midamor, Dyrenium, Aldactone)
If you are taking both lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide and a potassium-sparing diuretic, your body may metabolize them differently than intended, increase the levels of potassium in your blood, or both. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress closely.
Lithium (Eskalith, Lithane, Lithonate, Lithotabs)
If you are taking both lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide and lithium, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended and increase the lithium levels in the blood. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your serum lithium levels more frequently.
If you are on liquid gold therapy, there is a possibility that lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide will interact with the liquid gold. Symptoms of such an interaction may include facial flushing, nausea, vomiting, and low blood pressure. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience any of these symptoms.
Taking insulin with lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide may cause high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). For your particular situation, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of insulin as needed.
Oral Diabetes Medication
Taking an oral diabetes medication with lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide may increase blood sugar levels. For your particular situation, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of diabetes medications as needed.
Other Blood Pressure Medicine
When taking lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide with another high blood pressure medication, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to decrease the chances of developing this lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely, change the dose of either medicine, or both.
