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
How can I deal with hyperkalemia (high potassium) during treatement of high blood pressur by zestril (lisinopril)?
Taking 10mg lisinopril/day. Will a supplement containing 300 mg potassium/day cause issues with elevated potassium?
Is 12.5 mg of hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) and 10mg lisinopril capable of giving you low potassium?
Would low potassium cause more than just a cramp/charlie horse in one leg? On nexoum for 8 days and on lisinopril 10mg n hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) 12.5. Should I worry?
Get potassium measur: Low potassium doesn't cause muscle cramps - it can cause tetany and, in extremely low levels, it can cause muscle weakness (called "periodic paralysis"). I suggest you have your potassium measured and then supplement it if it's low. Low potassium is a common cause of cardiac arrhythmias. ...Read more

A normal kidney will excrete excess potassium you may consume. The fact is that most western diet are deficient in potassium, consuming sodium in great excess of sodium.

On lisinopril/hctz 20/12.5mg for hypertension and spironolactone 50 mg foracnehow much potassium should I eat a day? And being on two diuretics safe?
Probably OK: Spironolactone can in rare cases cause high potassium, but in a young healthy person usually not an issue. To be safe, have your potassium levels checked (blood test) but you may generally eat whatever you want. The combination of diuretic is generally considered safe, but as I said, get your potassium level checked. ...Read more
Is it safe to take ibuprofen with metoprolol, lisinopril hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) and Klor-Con 10?
My potassium level is low, dr started me on potassium chloride, but I take lisinipril htc. Is this ok?
Yes: The low potassium is due to the diuretic in your medicine (the htc). This diuretic works toward the end of the kidney tubule and increases the loss of potassium. It is important to take the potassium chloride and have the blood level checked to be sure of improvement. Very low potassium levels can be dangerous. ...Read more
I was taking lisinipril with the water pill, but my potassium got too low and he took the water pill away. Now im retaining water feet swoll, now what?
Retaining edema: You need to speak to your doctor about your water retention. Diuretics waste not only potassium (k) in your urine, they also waste magnesium (m). The reason why your k was low could be due to your having a low m as well. You could go back on your diuretic and take supplement k. If your m was low, you may also need m supplements. Retention of fluid is a dangerous thing. Speak to your physician asap. ...Read more

Does medical marijuana, with high cannabidiol and low THC content, have negative interactions with lisinopril, hydrochlorothiazide, and a pacemaker that performs 87% of an elderly person's heart beat?
2 difficulties with: This question. Pacemakers do not "perform" heart beats. They only emit tiny electrical shocks to heart muscle when heart contraction not electrically detected within time limit set in pacemaker programming. Electronic pacemaker initiated heart beats are always weaker because less well coordinated. No clinical research trial data exists to answer 1st questions; though zero basis to believe healthy. ...Read more

Interaction Risk Etc:
Multiple interactions possible and though the side effects are usually mild they can become severe. Risks include Serotonin Syndrome (see Wikipedia), fluid accumulation, and even seizures.
Your combination of activating, antidepressant, and sedating/tranquilizing meds is worth a close review. For e.g. clonazepam 3 mg daily is quite high in combo with the others.
In psychotherapy too hopefully? ...Read more
