Monopril-HCT Drug Interactions

Diuretics
When taking Monopril-HCT with a diuretic, your blood pressure may decrease too much. This is more likely to occur when Monopril-HCT is first started. In order to decrease the chances of this interaction, your healthcare provider may change the dose of either medicine, start you on a lower dose of Monopril-HCT, and/or monitor you more closely.
 
Injectable Gold
Reactions have been reported in people taking Monopril-HCT who received gold injections. These reactions included symptoms such as facial flushing, nausea, vomiting, and low blood pressure.
 
Lithium
Monopril-HCT 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.
 
Narcotics
When taking Monopril-HCT with a narcotic, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to decrease the chances of this interaction, your healthcare provider may change the dose of either medicine, start you on a lower dose of Monopril-HCT, and/or monitor you more closely.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
If you have kidney disease or kidney failure, taking both NSAIDs and Monopril-HCT may add to the damage that your kidneys are already experiencing. Also, NSAIDs may decrease the blood pressure-lowering effects of Monopril-HCT. For your particular situation, talk to your healthcare provider about using NSAIDs and Monopril-HCT together.
 
Potassium
If you are taking Monopril-HCT along with a potassium product, 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 Monopril-HCT together.
