More Info on Moexipril/HCTZ Interactions

Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARBs)
Combining moexipril/HCTZ with an ARB may increase the risk for certain side effects, such as high blood potassium, kidney problems, or very low blood pressure. These medications are sometimes used together with appropriate monitoring.
 
Azathioprine
There have been reports of blood cell problems occurring in people who took an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE inhibitor) with azathioprine. Although reports have not included moexipril/HCTZ specifically, this medication does contain an ACE inhibitor and your healthcare provider may want to monitor you for this interaction if you take these medications together.
 
Barbiturates
Taking a barbiturate with moexipril/HCTZ may lower your blood pressure to unsafe levels. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medications together.
 
Bile Acid Sequestrant Cholesterol Medications
Bile acid sequestrant medications can bind to moexipril/HCTZ in the gastrointestinal tract and decrease the amount of the medication absorbed into the body. Moexipril/HCTZ should be taken at least one hour before or four to six hours after a bile acid sequestrant in order to avoid this interaction.
 
Calcium Supplements or Calcium-Containing Antacids
Taking moexipril/HCTZ with calcium products may increase blood calcium levels (hypercalcemia). If you are taking moexipril/HCTZ, talk to your healthcare provider about using calcium supplements or antacids that contain calcium.
 
Calcitriol
Taking moexipril/HCTZ with calcitriol may cause an elevated blood calcium level (hypercalcemia). Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your blood calcium levels if you take these medications together.
