Blood Pressure Home > Altace Drug Interactions

Several medications, such as diuretics, NSAIDs, potassium-sparing diuretics, and lithium, can cause drug interactions with Altace. For example, taking Altace with a diuretic may cause a person's blood pressure to decrease too much. And when Altace is taken with lithium, it may alter the way the body metabolizes both drugs.
