Thiazide diuretics..: Such as hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) can increase the amount of potassium that your kidneys put out, thereby lowering your blood levels. Ask your provider to consider switching you to a potassium-sparing diuretic rather than just adding potassium supplements. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Which is the best treatment for hbp: exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) or diltiazem and lisinopril?
No,why would you?: Cozaar (losartan) is an arb class of blood pressure lowering medication, appropriate for those w/high blood pressure or hypertension. Midodrine is an Alpha receptor agonist used to treat patients w/orthostatic hypotension, whose blood pressure falls when they change positions. I can't imagine too many patients w/htn who are orthostatic w/treatment where you'd add another med rather than give fluids, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hypercalcemia(5.8-6.5).A doctor asked to replace Exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) by Amlor.Other Doctor said Exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) doesnt increase Potassium.Does Exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) cause Hypercalcemia?

In any case, HCT causes mild hypercalcemia - should not bring on confusion etc unless other issues with low sodium etc. glad to discuss details and diabetes ...Read more

Yes, but, be careful: Any dehydration will make Lisinopril slow down your kidney function. So, if you have anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea (causing mild dehydration), the maxzide (hydrocholorthiazide and triamterene) will make your dehydration worse due to obligatory urine (water) loss caused by maxzide (hydrocholorthiazide and triamterene) (a diuretic). In this case, Lisinopril will be deleterious to your kidneys until you correct the dehydration. So, if you are losing fluids hold maxzide (hydrocholorthiazide and triamterene). ...Read more
Is it safe to take metformin (for diabetes) with a diuretic (thiaxide, maxzide, (hydrocholorthiazide and triamterene) etc ) for blood pressure ?
Is it safe to take ibuprofen with metoprolol, lisinopril hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) and Klor-Con 10?
Yes: In moderation, Ibuprofen is safe with those medications. Ibuprofen like all nsaids does go through the kidneys as does Lisinopril and hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) so very prolonged use of the Ibuprofen is not recommended at is may cause kidney damage. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
They are different: Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) is a mild diuretic that removes sodium from the body causing an increased volume of urine and lowers blood pressure by reducing the volume of 'salt water' in our circulatory system. Lisinopril inhibits a certain specialized chemical reaction in our bodies that leads to a reduced retention of sodium in our bodies but also a reduced tension on our blood vessels, thus lowering blood pressure. ...Read more
