Are there any risks associated with taking quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide?

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. Quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide can increase your risk for sunburn, may trigger a dangerous drop in blood pressure or a change in blood sugar. Quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide may cause your body to have a harder time fighting infections, so avoid people who are sick, and tell your doctor immediately if you feel like you are getting an infection. Similarly, you should be sure to inform your doctor, dentist, or any medical personnel that you are taking quinapril-hydrochlorothiazide, if you require any treatment or care while on the drug.
