Lisinopril Potassium Interaction
Taking potassium citrate 10meq couple years. Started lisinopril 20mg1/13. Just did a drug interaction check & rated severe. How concerned should I be?
I have been on 20mg lisinopril for 11 years dr switched to losarten 50 mg should I be concerned about too much potassium?
Yes.: You would have to eat a rather large amount to have any meaningful impact on your serum potassium levels.
My potassium level is 5.1. Could this be due to the 40mg of lisinopril I am taking? Also, should I cut out my daily v-8?
Is it ok to eat foods with potassium some times when on lisinopril my doc said nothing of avoiding any I'm on 10 mg?
K good on ACE: 31 M of unknown ethnicity, family Hx medical Hx or all meds being taken asks ok to eat food with K. ANS yes as all foods contain K. But your dr knows much more about you than I do. So ask your team.
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
Taking 10mg lisinopril/day. Will a supplement containing 300 mg potassium/day cause issues with elevated potassium?
POSSIBLY: Lisinopril is known to often raise your potassium level. Taking additional potassium, if your potassium is already high can lead to serious issues. Avoid supplement if your last potassium level was already high. Otherwise have your potassium levels checked out regularly.See 1 more doctor answer
Is 12.5 mg of hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) and 10mg lisinopril capable of giving you low potassium?
Thiazide diuretics..: Such as hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) can increase the amount of potassium that your kidneys put out, thereby lowering your blood levels. Ask your provider to consider switching you to a potassium-sparing diuretic rather than just adding potassium supplements.See 2 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer

Hi. I was just put on Lisinopril for blood pressure, but I have changed my diet to whole foods. Will my high potassium diet interact with the Rx?
Hyperkalemia: Its not going necessarily going to elevate your potassium if your kidney function is normal.
The internet says I can't eat potassium rich foods on lisinopril 5mg?! that's like all the healthy food? How am I supposed to eat healthy?
Talk to MD: Don't listen to everything you read on the internet! If your kidney function is normal, you can consume potassium risch foods safely. 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. Feel free to eat the natural, healthy and potassium rich foods freely. Www. Whatscookingwithdoc. Com.See 1 more doctor answer

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.
