Infact when he pulled it up in his computer you could see a big red flag flashing the computer would not let him prescribe this combo even if he wanted???? so he put me on the same amount of Lisinopril and 25 mg of regular Hydrochlothiazide. Also on forums I've read NO ONE is on a combination of lisinopril/maxzide, which doctor is correct? Answered by Margert Heist 2 years ago.
It's probably since both are used to lower hypertension, a rapid depletion in your blood pressure could be damaging to your body. However try seeking another pharmacist and/or doctor to talk to you about this. If you've been feeling any effects, then you may be in trouble. Consult an expert on this.

If I take Maxzide as a diuretic is it dangerous? If so what else can I take?
I just need to release the excess water in my body and I am in between insurance. My friend gave me a lot of Maxzide, would it be safe enough to take, just once or twice a week as a diuretic? Does anyone know anything else I could take that is more natural but VERY effective?
Asked by Lynda Utzig 2 years ago.
Terrible idea. If you'd been trained as a pharmacist, physician, or other medical professional you'd understand why. Talk with a professional. There are plenty of low-cost prescription durietics that could be used safely (even for those without insurance...) after some assessment by trained professionals to make sure you're not going to inadvertently kill yourself.

It is a diuretic that also lowers the BP as another effect of it's second component. It is your decision. Answered by Candie Jacklin 2 years ago.

Answered by Nettie Wernick 2 years ago.
Sorry, this is one of those questions people don't want to touch with a ten-foot pole. Notice that nobody else has answered in a week? The reason is that this is a complex medical question and needs to be answered by a doctor -- in person. Even if a doctor were to read this question online, he wouldn't answer it in specific terms without seeing your sister face to face, reviewing her medical history, and probably doing a blood work-up. In the meantime, while you're trying to figure out the answer to your question, it is best to assume it is unsafe to mix all of these together. From what I can gather here, her doctor has approved her using Abdominal Cuts, but not with the prescription drugs she's taking. Prescription drug taking will alter body chemistry in so many ways. Please encourage her to see her doctor soon if she wants to mix another product into this chemical soup. There are side effects any time you stir something else into the pot. God bless your sister -- and you -- for helping her. Answered by Lanie Papi 2 years ago.
No one can diagnose these symptoms?
I'm not necessarily concerned with the fainting. I'm just concerned about her arms and legs pulling towards her chest and her speech being slurred after it happens (for about 1 hour). Am I just being over-concerned?
Asked by Johnnie Wolski 2 years ago.
About a year ago, my mom fainted immediately after having blood drawn. Her arms and legs drew in and her speech was slurred. She was better a few hours later. ER and doctor couldn't find reason. She had started taking Maxzide a month prior. It all happened again today in church. ER says Potassium level was low. No one seems to take this as a concern, but it's very scary to think she may not wake up one day or it could paralyze her. Has anyone else heard of this or have any idea what's going on? We're at a loss of what to do. Answered by Chanda Disalvo 2 years ago.
Fainting does not cause a stroke and is not a permanent condition. It is a temporary condition caused by a sudden drop in blood pressure when someone stands up quickly, during a painful procedure (blood draw) or the sight of blood or from electrolyte imbalances - all of which can be corrected. Missing a meal before church, then standing quickly can cause a fainting spell. Make sure she eats before going to church. Since she has fainted twice, she should be cautious about going from sitting to standing quickly - do slow movements. Also, do not stand for any length of time with your knees locked - bend each knee intermittently which will also help prevent fainting. If it continues, she will need some additional testing to get the answers. Answered by Leida Sojo 2 years ago.
Usually Maxzide causes high potassium levels in the blood. Persons taking this drug should regularly have their blood potassium levels checked by their doctor. Answered by Krystle Drumgole 2 years ago.
on the beginning up look, i presumed she is bulimic. undesirable weight loss software, undesirable food, in simple terms no longer getting sufficient sodium and electrolytes, she ought to coach an outstanding form of those indicators. it must be no longer something extra advantageous than a sodium imbalance. i'm questioning why she ought to abruptly start up displaying those indicators now. If she is abusing drugs that would create this surprising imbalance. have you ever observed, or are you close up sufficient to her, which you will discover how lots she's eating? Is she eating below standard? Anorexia or bulimia ought to recommend she's no longer eating sufficient or eating too lots and then purging it. a loss of food could make for this way of acute stress. Why would be unable to you in simple terms sit down her down and ask her your self? Invite her over for dinner, furnish to make some thing she particularly likes and as quickly as you have have been given her interest make your pitch. communicate in a tremendous, calm or maybe voice. i'm particular too lots anger would scare her away. permit her understand your right here and you'd be happy to help any way you are able to. too lots drama looks like that too would disillusioned her delicate stability and you have misplaced your huge probability. you're able to desire to get previous the secret and discover some solutions. you should be doing her a great prefer.

I was prescribed Triamterene (Maxzide) and Potassium CL together for edema (leaky veins) about 1 month ago. All is going well, but now they are putting me Levothyroxine (Synthroid) due to hyprothyrodism. A friend of mine said I should be careful about taking the Potassium and Levothyroxine together, but I can't find anything on the net about it. Also, are there any foods I should avoid eating while taking these meds? Answered by Renata Wallach 2 years ago.
I wouldn't be worried about taking the levothyroxine and the potassium together- I'd be worried about the triamterene and the potassium together. Diuretics are commonly given for edema to help your body pee out that extra water. With the water, your body also pees out a bunch of potassium, and low potassium is bad for your heart. That's why doctors give potassium supplements with diuretics. However, some diuretics are worse than others at "wasting" your body's potassium. Triamterene is actually not- it's called a "potassium sparing diuretic," which means that it doesn't cause your body to waste potassium- it actually helps your body retain potassium. It's not usually prescribed with potassium supplements because it doesn't cause your body to lose potassium like other diuretics. It sounds to me like your doctor prescribed the potassium with the diuretic as a combo without thinking it's not needed in this case. It may even cause your potassium to elevate too much, which is also bad for your heart. Of course- yours could be a special case, if you have low potassium in general, but potassium supplements aren't usually prescribed with Maxzide. I'd call your doctor and ask him to check your potassium levels and make sure that you aren't taking too much. Tell him your pharmacist said there's an interaction between those two drugs, and you want to be sure there aren't any adverse effects. I hope he's do the test at no charge, since it sounds like it was his oversight on the drug interaction there. Answered by Michell Ostermann 2 years ago.
soy will prevent your body from absorbing the thyroid med, don't eat soy products for at least 3 hours after taking the Levothyroxine and take it at least an hour before eating and drinking anything but water. sorry I dont know abot the other med. but I can recomend a book called "living with hypothyroidism" Answered by Chery Dalesandro 2 years ago.
