Heparin: May enhance the hyperkalemic effect of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors.Heparins (Low Molecular Weight): May enhance the hyperkalemic effect of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors.Herbs (Hypertensive Properties): May diminish the antihypertensive effect of Antihypertensive Agents.Herbs (Hypotensive Properties): May enhance the hypotensive effect of Blood Pressure Lowering Agents.Hypotension-Associated Agents: Blood Pressure Lowering Agents may enhance the hypotensive effect of Hypotension-Associated Agents. Does anyone have any information on raising the heart ejection fraction? Specifically, the risk for angioedema or allergic reactions may be increased. Protect from moisture.Alfuzosin: May enhance the hypotensive effect of Blood Pressure Lowering Agents.Aliskiren: May enhance the hyperkalemic effect of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors. I have been on metoprolol for over 15 years for heart rate and Lisinopril for over 10 years. Ejection fraction (EF) is a measurement doctors use to calculate the percentage of blood flowing out of your left and right ventricles with each heart contraction. His cardiologist has said no heavy exertion or heavy lifting. Specifically, the risk of angioedema may be increased.Yohimbine: May diminish the antihypertensive effect of Antihypertensive Agents.May lead to false-negative aldosterone/renin ratio (ARR) (Funder 2016)Renal: Increased serum creatinine (≤10%; transient), increased blood urea nitrogen (≤2%; transient)Cardiovascular: Syncope (5% to 7%), chest pain (2% to 3%), flushing (≥1%), orthostatic effect (≥1%), vasculitis (≥1%)Central nervous system: Headache (4% to 6%), altered sense of smell (≥1%), fatigue (≥1%), paresthesia (≥1%), vertigo (≥1%)Dermatologic: Skin rash (≥1% to 2%), alopecia (≥1%), diaphoresis (≥1%), erythema (≥1%), pruritus (≥1%), skin photosensitivity (≥1%), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (≥1%), toxic epidermal necrolysis (≥1%), urticaria (≥1%)Endocrine & metabolic: Hyperkalemia (2% to 6%), diabetes mellitus (≥1%), gout (≥1%), SIADH (≥1%)Gastrointestinal: Diarrhea (≥1% to 4%), constipation (≥1%), dysgeusia (≥1%), flatulence (≥1%), pancreatitis (≥1%), xerostomia (≥1%)Hematologic & oncologic: Bone marrow depression (≥1%), eosinophilia (≥1%), hemolytic anemia (≥1%), increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate (≥1%), leukocytosis (≥1%), leukopenia (≥1%), neutropenia (≥1%), positive ANA titer (≥1%), thrombocytopenia (≥1%; mean decrease of 0.4 mg/dL)Neuromuscular & skeletal: Arthralgia (≥1%), arthritis (≥1%), myalgia (≥1%), weakness (≥1%)Ophthalmic: Blurred vision (≥1%), diplopia (≥1%), photophobia (≥1%), vision loss (≥1%)Renal: Renal insufficiency (in patients with acute myocardial infarction: 1% to 2%)Hematologic & oncologic: Decreased hematocrit, decreased hemoglobin (mean decrease of 1.3%)Hepatic: Increased liver enzymes, increased serum bilirubin<1%, postmarketing, and/or case reports: Acute renal failure, angioedema, confusion, cutaneous pseudolymphoma, dehydration, fever, hallucination, hypoglycemia (diabetic patients on oral antidiabetic agents or insulin), hyponatremia, mood changes (including depressive symptoms), psoriasis, visual hallucinationWhen pregnancy is detected, discontinue lisinopril as soon as possible. It is not clear if any other combination of an ACE inhibitor and an ARB would be any safer. If the combination cannot be avoided, maintain adequate hydration and monitor renal function closely.Tacrolimus (Systemic): Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors may enhance the hyperkalemic effect of Tacrolimus (Systemic). Specifically, the risk of angioedema may be increased. Everyone is so different with which meds work for them and which do not.
When unstented bilateral renal artery stenosis is present, use is generally avoided due to the elevated risk of deterioration in renal function unless possible benefits outweigh risks.• Renal impairment: Use with caution in preexisting renal insufficiency; dosage adjustment may be needed.
Close monitoring of patients is required especially within the first few weeks of initial dosing and with dosing increases; blood pressure must be lowered at a rate appropriate for the patient's clinical condition. Infants exposed to an ACE inhibitor in utero should be monitored for hyperkalemia, hypotension, and oliguria. In addition, ACE inhibitors cause a higher rate of angioedema in black than in non-black patients.• Surgical patients: In patients on chronic ACE inhibitor therapy, intraoperative hypotension may occur with induction and maintenance of general anesthesia; use with caution before, during, or immediately after major surgery. Prolonged frequent monitoring may be required especially if tongue, glottis, or larynx are involved as they are associated with airway obstruction. If your doctor says your ejection fraction is too low, under 50%, it means there may be a problem with your heart. Common Blood Pressure Meds May Lower Colon Cancer Risk Management: When amifostine is used at chemotherapy doses, blood pressure lowering medications should be withheld for 24 hours prior to amifostine administration.
