What amount potassium can I have while on lisinopril/hctz?

What amount potassium can I have while on lisinopril/hctz?

Potassium and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide): Lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide (L) decreases levels of serum magnesium (M) by increasing the elimination of the drug through the kidney. This will lead to low levels of potassium (K), which will not be corrected until M is repleted. HCTZ is not as potent as a loop diuretic, furosemide, for wasting K. Speak to your physician (P) to see what your P says, as your P can answer you best of all. ...Read more

I ran out of lisinopril 40mg. Can I take 2 lisinopril hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) 10-12.5mg?

These are different: Medications as one is a combination pill. Taking someone else's medication is generally not a good idea, and taking your own from some time ago without your doctor's approval may bring more harm than good. There may be a reason why your doctor does not want you to take the combination pill, as HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) is a diuretic and does different things to your body besides control your pressure. Ask your dr. ...Read more

I took one time25mg of metropolol yesterday and dr wants me on lisinopril -hctz 20.12.5 is this safe to take after the dose of metropolol yesterday?

Ask your physician if, your BP is not controlled, you can go to lh 40/25 to see if your BP can be controlled on that dose and stop the metropolol. Your 25 mg dose is quite low. ...Read more
