Is Lisinopril and Avalide the same drug?
Asked by Dick Gaines 1 year ago.

I hope not. Lisinopril costs $4 at Wal Mart and Avalide is $$$$. Both are ACE Inhibitors but my Avalide has a dueretic in it and is suppose to be a "new generation" ACE inhibitor. Lisinopril is the same as Zestril I beleive and Zestril has no dueretic in it. Zestoretic does. Both control hypertension well in my experience. Avalide is suppose to cut down on side affects like ACE cough according to my old Doc. IF they were the same then my insurance would not pay for Avalide because Lisinopril is a generic. The parmacist may know something but Lisinopril is a generic of Zestril. I buy both of them every month. Avalide for me as prescribed and Lisinopril for my wife as prescribed. Lisinopril is $4 at Wal Mart and they sell generics for $4 see my link and give me the 10 points. They both work by relaxing blood vessels. Lisinopril ( brand name zestril) works to inhibit an enzyme in the muscles around blood vessels. Avalide works on a hormone and ends up doing the same thing. Avalide is hazardous to the human fetus. Avalide also makes you produce more urine and thus expel more water and salt. Answered by Dorthea Waterston 1 year ago.

No, lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor and Avalide (irbesartan + HCTZ) is an ARB plus a diuretic. ACE inhibitors and ARBs are very similar in that they both control blood pressure by working on the kidney. They are not available as generics. It is best practice to prescribe an ACE inhibitor first. If the person develops a cough (from accumulation of bradykinin), then they are switched to an ARB. Some doctors go straight to the ARB, but they are probably snowed by their drug rep. Answered by Lazaro Spuck 1 year ago.

I don't know if they are the same, but Lisinopril is used to treat high Blood Pressure. Answered by Thi Lemick 1 year ago.


I have hypertension and take avalide which is part diuretic?
also take 240 verapamilhci er /the avalide is 300/12.5 Asked by Dwight Abbatiello 1 year ago.

Avalide is a combo drug: irbesartan and HCTZ. You are getting the best treatment right now. HCTZ is the first line in treating hypertension. It is a diuretic but not a strong one. This drug reduces the amount of stress on your peripheral arteries thus reducing the complications of high blood pressure. Irbesartan is a class of drug that blocks a chemical that stops your body from losing salt in the urine and constricting your arteries. Salt+water adds volume to your blood, and the more volume in your body(a closed space), the higher your blood pressure. Both of them work together to keep blood pressure low by either releasing salt or lowering the tension on your arteries. Answered by Kristyn Towell 1 year ago.

I may not see a question here. Ask your doctor to switch to Inderal/Propranolol, a good Beta Blocker and to lower BP without diuretic properties, dehydration, sugar fluctuations etc. Also helps with anxiety, it's a fantastic win-win treatment. Answered by Jerrell Shepperdson 1 year ago.

What is the difference between Avalide and Diovan?
My insurance will only pay for Diovan, yet the doctor prescribed Avalide. What is the difference? Asked by Pamala Vanconey 1 year ago.

They are both Cardio products Avalide is Irbesartan + Hydrochlorothiazide while Diovan is Valsartan Both are A2rBs or angiotensin II receptor blockers (drugs usually ending in "sartans") The doctors are usually updated on the latest therapy in dealing with heart diseases in which the trend nowadays is using A2rBs in combination with diuretics like Hydrochlorothiazide. Tell your doctor you are considering that your insurance pay for Diovan to give you a new course of therapy since both of them A2rBs. Answered by Ernesto Holberton 1 year ago.

The problem is, most of what Tony said hasn't been demonstrated to work very effectively. Hypertension is generally managed with a combination of drugs. You can't just substitute it with random things. Effective hypertension management is very important. Your mother needs to continue with the medication that has been prescribed to her. In addition to medication, your mum should be following a healthy diet and exercise plan. We should all be doing this regardless. Answered by Laraine Gristede 1 year ago.

First of all, there is no such thing as "the blood pressure", so "it" can't be either high nor low. There are four different pressures, all of which perform different functions, behave differently, don't rise and fall together, and they simply can't be lumped together and called "the Blood Pressure" That's just silly, and sloppy science. The way the cardiovascular system works is match "supply" with "demand, by varying Mean Arterial Pressure while also varying the impedance to blood flow by dilating or constricting blood vessels. It does this by varying both the pulse rate and the amount of blood pumped out at each stroke. So the Mean Pressure can NEVER be too high, - but of course -in cardiac failure, it can be too low. The brain sets the level of Mean pressure, which is {diastolic plus one-third of pulse-pressure} -pulse pressure being the difference between systolic (the top one) and diastolic (the lower one). It sets it at a level appropriate to deliver the correct bood supply to all the organs, including the heart, and the brain itself. Sometimes, in order to do this, higher than confortable levels of systolic pressures are the result. I don't know what age you are, but a rough rule of thumb for your systolic is "100 + your age".** (see source reference below). If it's wildly above that, it should be of concern. I swear by homeopathy, but only when orthodox medicine has failed you. So go see your doctor, and get the best advice and don't substitute homeopathic remedies until orthodoxy has failed. It probably will, because even the drugs companies admit that most of their medicines don't actually work! Then return to homeopathy. Inability to sleep has nothing to do with hypertension, and the pain in the back of your neck too is irrelevant. Get your doctor to investigate those separately. Pain relievers are mostly safe and effective, and sedatives to allow you to sleep (on a temporary basis) will assist. Answered by Lyn Reavish 1 year ago.

It is impossible to answer your question. Only a doctor who is familiar with your mother's specific case can determine what Blood Pressure medicine is right for her. There are many medicines out there. Avalide may be best for your mother but not the best for someone else. It is impossible for anyone here to know what might be a good alternative medicne for your mother. Explain to your doctor and ask if he can prescribe something less expensive. Answered by Kathlene Keyton 1 year ago.

Here's an idea: Instead of looking for the next best unnatural drug and all the possible side effects and cost, look instead to effective, safer and less expensive natural remedies for high blood pressure such as: Cayenne Pepper is probably the fastest way to lower high blood pressure. Either mix one teaspoon of cayenne pepper with half a cup of luke-warm water and stir, or better still, mix two tablespoons of honey with two teaspoons of cayenne pepper and boil them with a glass of water and drink when it is warm. Not only will this bring great relief to your high blood pressure, but it also tastes good! Hawthorn berries have rightly been called "food for the heart". They lower blood pressure as well as protecting arterial walls and preventing and treating hypertension and angina. Two Evening Primrose oil pills a day can drop blood pressure about 10 points off of both the bottom and top numbers. Cutting out all caffeine can lower blood pressure by 10-15 points off the top and 8-10 points off the bottom. Likewise, avoidance of alcohol and cigarettes will help lower blood pressure. Eat lots of garlic, preferably raw minced garlic. Studies have proven that garlic significantly lowers both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Likewise cinnamon can help lower blood pressure, as well as lower circulating blood glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and overall cholesterol. Mix 1/2 onion juice and 1/2 honey. Take two tablespoons once a day for one to two weeks. Eat one Papaya on an empty stomach daily for a month. Do not eat anything after for about two hours. A healthy diet with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, and quality fish oils and other good omega 3 fats and a bit of regular physical activity will also help - and should be considered essential. NOTE: No one should quit their high blood pressure medications cold turkey, but instead should begin cutting back gradually and substituting natural blood pressure items until they reach the desired results with a combination of natural items and no or little medication - and blood pressure should be monitored daily at home to be safe.

Pain relievers are mostly safe and effective, and sedatives to allow you to sleep (on a temporary basis) will assist. Answered by Erik Canzio 1 year ago.

It is impossible to answer your question. Only a doctor who is familiar with your mother's specific case can determine what Blood Pressure medicine is right for her. There are many medicines out there. Avalide may be best for your mother but not the best for someone else. It is impossible for anyone here to know what might be a good alternative medicne for your mother. Explain to your doctor and ask if he can prescribe something less expensive. Answered by Brett Rimer 1 year ago.

Here's an idea: Instead of looking for the next best unnatural drug and all the possible side effects and cost, look instead to effective, safer and less expensive natural remedies for high blood pressure such as: Cayenne Pepper is probably the fastest way to lower high blood pressure. Either mix one teaspoon of cayenne pepper with half a cup of luke-warm water and stir, or better still, mix two tablespoons of honey with two teaspoons of cayenne pepper and boil them with a glass of water and drink when it is warm. Not only will this bring great relief to your high blood pressure, but it also tastes good! Hawthorn berries have rightly been called "food for the heart". They lower blood pressure as well as protecting arterial walls and preventing and treating hypertension and angina. Two Evening Primrose oil pills a day can drop blood pressure about 10 points off of both the bottom and top numbers. Cutting out all caffeine can lower blood pressure by 10-15 points off the top and 8-10 points off the bottom. Likewise, avoidance of alcohol and cigarettes will help lower blood pressure. Eat lots of garlic, preferably raw minced garlic. Studies have proven that garlic significantly lowers both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Likewise cinnamon can help lower blood pressure, as well as lower circulating blood glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and overall cholesterol. Mix 1/2 onion juice and 1/2 honey. Take two tablespoons once a day for one to two weeks. Eat one Papaya on an empty stomach daily for a month. Do not eat anything after for about two hours. A healthy diet with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, and quality fish oils and other good omega 3 fats and a bit of regular physical activity will also help - and should be considered essential. NOTE: No one should quit their high blood pressure medications cold turkey, but instead should begin cutting back gradually and substituting natural blood pressure items until they reach the desired results with a combination of natural items and no or little medication - and blood pressure should be monitored daily at home to be safe.

Is Lisinopril and Avalide the same drug?
Asked by Verlene Elke 1 year ago.

I hope not. Lisinopril costs $4 at Wal Mart and Avalide is $$$$. Both are ACE Inhibitors but my Avalide has a dueretic in it and is suppose to be a "new generation" ACE inhibitor. Lisinopril is the same as Zestril I beleive and Zestril has no dueretic in it. Zestoretic does. Both control hypertension well in my experience. Avalide is suppose to cut down on side affects like ACE cough according to my old Doc. IF they were the same then my insurance would not pay for Avalide because Lisinopril is a generic. The parmacist may know something but Lisinopril is a generic of Zestril. I buy both of them every month. Avalide for me as prescribed and Lisinopril for my wife as prescribed. Lisinopril is $4 at Wal Mart and they sell generics for $4 see my link and give me the 10 points. They both work by relaxing blood vessels. Lisinopril ( brand name zestril) works to inhibit an enzyme in the muscles around blood vessels. Avalide works on a hormone and ends up doing the same thing. Avalide is hazardous to the human fetus. Avalide also makes you produce more urine and thus expel more water and salt. Answered by Shakia Leny 1 year ago.

No, lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor and Avalide (irbesartan + HCTZ) is an ARB plus a diuretic. ACE inhibitors and ARBs are very similar in that they both control blood pressure by working on the kidney. They are not available as generics. It is best practice to prescribe an ACE inhibitor first. If the person develops a cough (from accumulation of bradykinin), then they are switched to an ARB. Some doctors go straight to the ARB, but they are probably snowed by their drug rep. Answered by Iliana Stemp 1 year ago.

I don't know if they are the same, but Lisinopril is used to treat high Blood Pressure. Answered by Hellen Charlette 1 year ago.


I have hypertension and take avalide which is part diuretic?
also take 240 verapamilhci er /the avalide is 300/12.5 Asked by Veda Rueluas 1 year ago.

Avalide is a combo drug: irbesartan and HCTZ. You are getting the best treatment right now. HCTZ is the first line in treating hypertension. It is a diuretic but not a strong one. This drug reduces the amount of stress on your peripheral arteries thus reducing the complications of high blood pressure. Irbesartan is a class of drug that blocks a chemical that stops your body from losing salt in the urine and constricting your arteries. Salt+water adds volume to your blood, and the more volume in your body(a closed space), the higher your blood pressure. Both of them work together to keep blood pressure low by either releasing salt or lowering the tension on your arteries. Answered by Berenice Schoenfelder 1 year ago.

I may not see a question here. Ask your doctor to switch to Inderal/Propranolol, a good Beta Blocker and to lower BP without diuretic properties, dehydration, sugar fluctuations etc. Also helps with anxiety, it's a fantastic win-win treatment. Answered by Doloris Keniston 1 year ago.

What is the difference between Avalide and Diovan?
My insurance will only pay for Diovan, yet the doctor prescribed Avalide. What is the difference? Asked by Herta Perillo 1 year ago.

They are both Cardio products Avalide is Irbesartan + Hydrochlorothiazide while Diovan is Valsartan Both are A2rBs or angiotensin II receptor blockers (drugs usually ending in "sartans") The doctors are usually updated on the latest therapy in dealing with heart diseases in which the trend nowadays is using A2rBs in combination with diuretics like Hydrochlorothiazide. Tell your doctor you are considering that your insurance pay for Diovan to give you a new course of therapy since both of them A2rBs. Answered by Shauna Mezzinni 1 year ago.

Your question isn't clear. Yes, your avalide has a mild diuretic in it. If your kidney test was significantly elevated, then it probably wasn't from not eating/drinking that morning. It was more of a long term thing. Answered by Kristan Plaxico 1 year ago.

The problem is, most of what Tony said hasn't been demonstrated to work very effectively. Hypertension is generally managed with a combination of drugs. You can't just substitute it with random things. Effective hypertension management is very important. Your mother needs to continue with the medication that has been prescribed to her. In addition to medication, your mum should be following a healthy diet and exercise plan. We should all be doing this regardless. Answered by Edith Tetteh 1 year ago.

First of all, there is no such thing as "the blood pressure", so "it" can't be either high nor low. There are four different pressures, all of which perform different functions, behave differently, don't rise and fall together, and they simply can't be lumped together and called "the Blood Pressure" That's just silly, and sloppy science. The way the cardiovascular system works is match "supply" with "demand, by varying Mean Arterial Pressure while also varying the impedance to blood flow by dilating or constricting blood vessels. It does this by varying both the pulse rate and the amount of blood pumped out at each stroke. So the Mean Pressure can NEVER be too high, - but of course -in cardiac failure, it can be too low. The brain sets the level of Mean pressure, which is {diastolic plus one-third of pulse-pressure} -pulse pressure being the difference between systolic (the top one) and diastolic (the lower one). It sets it at a level appropriate to deliver the correct bood supply to all the organs, including the heart, and the brain itself. Sometimes, in order to do this, higher than confortable levels of systolic pressures are the result. I don't know what age you are, but a rough rule of thumb for your systolic is "100 + your age".** (see source reference below). If it's wildly above that, it should be of concern. I swear by homeopathy, but only when orthodox medicine has failed you. So go see your doctor, and get the best advice and don't substitute homeopathic remedies until orthodoxy has failed. It probably will, because even the drugs companies admit that most of their medicines don't actually work! Then return to homeopathy. Inability to sleep has nothing to do with hypertension, and the pain in the back of your neck too is irrelevant. Get your doctor to investigate those separately.
