Drug Interactions With Fosinopril

Drug Interactions With Fosinopril Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when fosinopril is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Antacids
Taking antacids with fosinopril may decrease the absorption of fosinopril into the body. If you are taking antacids, they should be taken at least two hours before or after taking fosinopril tablets.
 
Diuretics
When taking fosinopril with a diuretic, your blood pressure may decrease too much. This is more likely to occur when fosinopril is first started. In order to decrease the chances of this interaction, your healthcare provider may change the dosages of either medicine, start you on a lower dose of fosinopril, and/or monitor you more closely.
 
Injectable Gold
Reactions have been reported in people taking fosinopril who received gold injections. These reactions included symptoms such as facial flushing, nausea, vomiting, and low blood pressure.
 
Lithium
Fosinopril 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)
If you have kidney disease or kidney failure, taking both NSAIDs and fosinopril may add to the damage that your kidneys are already experiencing. Also, NSAIDs may decrease fosinopril's ability to lower blood pressure. For your particular situation, talk to your healthcare provider about using NSAIDs and fosinopril together.
 
Potassium
If you are taking a potassium product and fosinopril, 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 fosinopril together.
