Avoid potassium: It's a great time to take this precaution - the only thing better would have been to get info from the doctor but they can be so quickly in and out that it's not always easy. All the usual OTC choices are a concern w/ respect to kidney function so you should call to get their advice and/or ask your pharmacist. The risk is not high, but worth attention. Moderate alcohol intake is not a problem. ...Read more

Can a drug test come out positive if I'm taking quinapril?

Can a drug test come out positive if I'm taking quinapril?

Well,: If your asking if the drug can be tested for, the answer is yes, but this is not an illegal drug--it is a drug for blood pressure and heart failure.

Hypertension: Best way to determine appropriate dose and/or combination of blood pressure lowering medications is to monitor your BP regularly. Use bicep cuff, not wrist device. Rest 5-10min before measuring. Wait another 5min then measure again. Goal BP in elderly is usually <150/90. In some circumstances, goal <140/90. Chat w/your doc to determine your goal & adjust dose/regimen. Don't forget cholesterol too. ...Read more
