Zestoretic

Effects

A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers -- for example, 120/80 mmHg. The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure, and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. During clinical studies in people taking Zestoretic, both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly.
 
By lowering blood pressure, Zestoretic can decrease the risk of developing health problems, such as a heart attack or stroke, that can result from long-term high blood pressure (see Effects of High Blood Pressure).
 

When and How Do I Take It?

Some general considerations for when and how to take Zestoretic include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form and is taken once a day.
     
  • You may take it with or without food.
     
  • Take Zestoretic at the same time each day. This will help to maintain an even level of the medicine in your blood.
     
  • For Zestoretic to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
     

Dosage Information for Zestoretic

The dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • How you respond to Zestoretic.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
