Accupril Drug Interactions

Lithium
Accupril may increase the risk of lithium toxicity and may increase the lithium levels in the blood. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your blood lithium levels more frequently and may need to adjust your lithium dosage.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Accupril can interact with NSAIDs in several ways. The combination could cause your blood pressure to increase or may cause swelling (edema), especially if you have congestive heart failure (CHF). If you are elderly, have kidney disease or kidney failure, or are taking a diuretic ("water pill") or are dehydrated, taking NSAIDs and Accupril together may cause kidney failure. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential drug interaction before taking these medications together.
  
Potassium
If you are taking a potassium product together with Accupril, the levels of potassium in your blood may become too high. This can cause serious problems. For your particular situation, talk to your healthcare provider about using potassium and Accupril together.
 
Potassium-Sparing Diuretics
If you are taking Accupril and a potassium-sparing diuretic, your blood pressure may decrease too much and/or the levels of potassium in your blood may become too high. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress closely.
 
Tetracycline
Taking both tetracycline and Accupril together may decrease the amount of tetracycline absorbed into the body. If you are taking Accupril and are prescribed tetracycline, let your healthcare provider know. He or she may choose to monitor your situation more closely, consider another antibiotic, or recommend that you take the two medications far apart during the day.
