Prinzide Overdose

If you take too much Prinzide, overdose symptoms may occur such as lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting; drowsiness; slow or irregular heartbeat; or loss of consciousness. Seek medical attention immediately if you overdose on Prinzide. Treatment for a recent Prinzide overdose may involve certain medicines or "pumping the stomach"; however, once the drug is absorbed into the body, dialysis may be administered. A person who has taken Prinzide and overdosed on the drug will also typically require supportive care.

Prinzide Overdose: An Overview

Prinzide® (lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide) is a medication used for controlling high blood pressure. Even though it happens rarely, a person can overdose on Prinzide -- just like any other medication. Prinzide overdose effects will vary depending on a number of factors, including how much Prinzide is taken and whether it is taken with any other medicines, alcohol, illegal drugs, or a combination of these.
 
If you happen to overdose on Prinzide, seek medical attention immediately. Likewise, if someone else who has taken Prinzide has overdosed on the medication, get help right away.
