Lisinopril Hctz Vs Lisinopril
Yes: Should be no issues.Get a more detailed answer ›
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.

I take 2 lisinopril-hctz 10-12.5 mg daily since abt a week ago. My BP ranges btwn 131-160 (systolic) & 87-103 (diastolic). Is this good?
BP controlled?: Your BP is not controlled when your BP is > 140 systolic and new governmental guide lines say that 150 systolic is not adverse. You BP reading of 160, needs to be be brought down, either by reducing any risk factors you may have for high bp. These include, obesity, excessive salt intake, lack of exercise, and smoking. Ask your physician for help in getting your BP under control. Good luck.
Yes: Their effects don't cross over. The duo is for hypertension and the other is for sleep or 'nerves'.
I take Lisinopril-HCTZ 20 mg and Metoperlol 25mg daily for hbp. This morning my BP was 102/67, is this to low?
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?
Dosing of BP meds: If you were my patient, I would use maximum doses of one BP medication and then go to another if the patient's BP was not controlled. You are less than maximum doses of both metropolol and lisiniopril-hctz (lh) 20/12.5. 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.See 1 more doctor answer

Lisinopril: Def has cough as a side effect. Talk to your doctor before changing or stopping. But the only way to know if it's the med. Is by stopping

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.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: And they're prescribed together all the time. That is a particularly good combination since they act by different mechanisms and the first one counteracts the side effects of the second.
Is it just as fine to take lisinopril/hctz versus taking lisinopril and amlodipine in a patient with a TIA with no recurrence in 9 months.
Choice of drugs: The answer to your question depends on how well controlled your blood pressure is on the lisinopril/hctz as opposed to it on amolodipine. The lower your blood pressure, without symptoms of hypotension, the less risk you have for strokes, heart attacks and renal failure in the future. Ask the physician (p) who wrote your prescriptions for advice, as your p knows your history better. Good luck.
