Quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide has a number of risks for interactions and serious side effects. If quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide is taken during the second or third trimester of pregnancy, it may cause harm or death to the developing fetus.

Because quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide can cause dizziness, you should not operate heavy machinery or drive until you know how it will affect you.
