More Drugs That React With Moexipril

Lithium
Moexipril may increase the risk of lithium toxicity by increasing the levels of lithium in the blood. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your blood lithium levels when you first start moexipril. You may need a lower lithium dosage. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you have symptoms of lithium toxicity, such as confusion, tremor, and incoordination while taking these medications together.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Moexipril can interact with NSAIDs in several ways. The combination could cause your blood pressure to increase or may cause swelling (edema), especially if you have congestive heart failure (CHF). If you are elderly, have kidney disease or kidney failure, or are taking a diuretic ("water pill") or are dehydrated, taking NSAIDs and moexipril together may cause kidney failure. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential drug interaction before taking these medications together.
  
Pentoxifylline
Taking moexipril with pentoxifylline may cause your blood pressure to lower too much. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your blood pressure more closely if you take these drugs together.
 
Potassium-Containing Products
If you take potassium products with moexipril, your blood potassium levels may become too high. Check with your healthcare provider before combining moexipril with any potassium product.
 
Potassium-Sparing Diuretics
Combining moexipril with potassium-sparing diuretics could increase your risk of high blood potassium (hyperkalemia). It could also cause your blood pressure to become too low. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medications together.
