Does Captopril interact with other medications or foods?

Captopril can interact with a number of drugs, including asprin, cyclosporine, digoxin, lithium, nitroglycerin and other heart medicines, other blood pressure medications, and diuretics. Because captopril can increase the potassium levels in the bloodstream, it may react with salt substitutes containing potassium and other medications known to increase potassium levels. Always check with your doctor to see whether or not captopril will react with any other medications you might be taking.
