Side Effects of Quinaretic: An IntroductionAs with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Quinaretic™ (quinapril HCL-hydrochlorothiazide). However, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate Quinaretic well. When Quinaretic 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.
(The Quinaretic side effects discussed below are not a complete list of side effects reported with the medicine. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Quinaretic side effects with you.)
