Does fosinopril-hydrochlorothiazide interact with other medications?

Fosinopril-hydrochlorothiazide is a prescription medicine that treats high blood pressure. Many medications can interact with fosinopril -hydrochlorothiazide and intensify side effects or decrease effectiveness. Do not take digoxin, dofetilide or ketanserin with fosinopril-hydrochlorotgiazide because of the increased risk for irregular heartbeat. Combination of this drug with angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) increase the risk of kidney damage. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs) drugs such as ibuprofen decrease the effectiveness of fosinopril-hydrochlorothiazide. Do not take cholestyramine or colestipo at the same time as fosinopril -hydrochlorothiazide. Talk to your doctor before using a salt substitute that contains potassium. Before starting fosinopril -hydrochlorothiazide, you should discuss with your doctor any medications you are currently taking, and not take additional medications without talking to your doctor first.
