Does triameterene hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) start working immediately or does it take a few days to start working.? Taking it with 40 mg lisinopril.
Hypertension: Triamterene/hctz should take effect within 24-48 hours to start bringing down your blood pressure. You should reach an optimal BP level in a week. Be sure to take the med as prescribed and followup as directed by your doctor. Weight control and limiting your sodium to 2000 mg daily are an important part of controlling hypertension.See 2 more doctor answers

High blood pressure: Lisinopril is a medication that is mainly used to treat high blood pressure (HBP) in adults and children, in whom it’s FDA-approved over 6 years of age (although it may sometimes be prescribed “off-label” to children who are younger). It is also prescribed to people who have heart failure or who have had a heart attack, even if they do not have HBP, to prevent future events.See 1 more doctor answer
Check with your doc: You can just stop it - there's no rebound. Why are you stopping it? If you have high blood pressure, you may need a substitute. If you have congestive heart failure, it may get worse. If you're on a diuretic, you may develop low potassium. This should be done with your doctor's supervision. That's why it's a prescription medicine.
Other problems?: Lisinopril itself is safe to use with exercise; however, the next question is why the Lisinopril was started. Exercise must be limited in a specific way for certain rhythm and heart disorders, so you should obtain clearance from your doctor or cardiologist before beginning an exercise plan.See 1 more doctor answer
