Accuretic Side Effects

It is possible to develop certain side effects while taking Accuretic. Side effects that are most commonly seen include headache, dizziness, cough, and fatigue. There are also a number of rare but possible side effects that are documented in less than 1 percent of patients, including dry mouth, weight loss, and anemia. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience side effects such as nausea or vomiting, seizures, or unexplained skin rash.

Accuretic Side Effects: An Overview

As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Accuretic® (quinapril HCL-hydrochlorothiazide). However, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate Accuretic well. When side effects do occur, in many cases they are minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
