Products That Can Interfere With Moexipril/HCTZ
More Detail on Drug Interactions With Moexipril/HCTZThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when moexipril/HCTZ is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Drinking alcohol while taking moexipril/HCTZ may lower your blood pressure to unsafe levels. If you consume alcohol while taking this medication, watch for symptoms of low blood pressure, such as dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting, especially when standing up from a seated position. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience these symptoms.
Combining moexipril/HCTZ with aliskiren may increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension), fainting, kidney problems (including kidney failure), and dangerously high potassium levels in the blood (hyperkalemia). In general, such combinations are usually avoided. If it is necessary to take such medications together, very close monitoring will be required. Aliskiren and moexipril/HCTZ should never be combined in people with diabetes, because they may have a higher risk for these complications. Also, this combination is not recommended for people with moderate to severe kidney problems.
Moexipril/HCTZ may increase the risk for potentially serious allopurinol side effects, especially when allopurinol is first started. If you take moexipril/HCTZ and need to start taking allopurinol, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely for side effects in the first five weeks of treatment.
Taking moexipril/HCTZ within 24 hours of receiving amifostine could lower your blood pressure to unsafe levels. Talk to your healthcare provider about this possible interaction if you receive amifostine treatment.
