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.

Family member took 13 pills of lisinopril hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) 10-12.5 mg is that an overdose?

Blood pressure: 13 pills of lisinopril/hctz combination can certainly cause problems and would qualify as an overdose. Should get to the hospital for observations and treatment if necessary.

Blood Pressure: I don't know the strength of the 4 tablets you took. However, periodically monitor your blood pressure for the next 24-36 hours and if it drops too low or you begin to feel faint or dizzy, seek emergency medical care. Also, keep yourself very well hydrated.

Not likely: If you have taken them before, you will not have an allergic reaction. Taking 4 might lead to temporary lightheadness due to low blood pressure for a day, but then it should resolve.

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?

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.

Possibly: While this is a common combination of medications, the Aspirin in Aggrenox can worsen renal function or even raise blood pressure. Follow up with your doctor on a regular basis for blood pressure checks and assessment of renal function.

I take Lisinopril-HCTZ 20 mg and Metoperlol 25mg daily for hbp. This morning my BP was 102/67, is this to low?

Depends: A blood pressure of 102/67 may be fine for some people, too low for others. The difference largely depends on the presence or absence of symptoms such as dizziness, feeling faint or lightheaded, rapid pulse rate. Best to discuss with your doctor in the context of your health history.

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.

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.

Can lisinopril-hctz and amlodipine besylate be taken together?

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.
