Can fosinopril interact with other medications or foods?

Fosinopril is a prescription medicine that treats high blood pressure. Many medications can interact with Fosinopril and intensify side effects or decrease effectiveness when taken together. Diuretics increase the risk of low blood pressure. Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) medications increase the risk of kidney damage. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs such as ibuprofen decrease the effectiveness of fosinopril. Do not use fosinopril if you are taking dofetilide or ketanserin. Talk to your doctor before using a salt substitute that contains potassium. Before starting fosinopril, you should discuss with your doctor any medications and supplements you are currently taking, and not take additional medications without talking to your doctor first.
