      Lisinopril , Hydrochlorothiazide

      Used For

      Hypertension

      How it works

      Lisinopril : The mechanism through which lisinopril lowers blood pressure is believed to be primarily suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Lisinopril is antihypertensive even in patients with low-renin hypertension. Hydrochlorothiazide : The mechanism of the antihypertensive effect of thiazides is unknown. Thiazides do not usually affect normal blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic and antihypertensive. Thiazides affect the renal tubular mechanisms of electrolyte reabsorption, directly increasing excretion of sodium and chloride in approximately equivalent amounts. Indirectly, the diuretic action of hydrochlorothiazide reduces plasma volume with consequent increase in plasma renin activity increase in aldosterone secretion, increases in urinary potassium loss and decrease in serum potassium. The renin-aldosterone link is mediated by angiotensin II, so co-administration of an angiotensin II receptor antagonist tends to reverse the potassium loss associated with these diuretics .

      Co-Trupril Tablets Precautions

      Precaution

      As with all antihypertensive therapy, symptomatic hypotension may occur in some patients. Periodic determination of serum electrolytes should be performed at appropriate intervals in such patients. In patients at increased risk of symptomatic hypotension, initiation of therapy and dose adjustment should be monitored under close medical supervision .

      Co-Trupril Tablets Warnings

      Warning 1

      Particular consideration should be given when therapy is administered to patients with ischemic heart or cerebrovascular disease because an excessive fall in blood pressure could result in a myocardial infarction or cerebrovascular accident.

      Warning 2

      Thiazides should be used with caution in patients with impaired hepatic function or progressive liver disease, since minor alterations of fluid and electrolyte balance may precipitate hepatic coma.

      Warning 3

      Thiazides may decrease urinary calcium excretion and may cause intermittent and slight elevation of serum calcium. Thiazides should be discontinued before carrying out tests for parathyroid function .
