What should I know about Corzide before taking it?

Corzide is a combination of two medications, a beta blocker and a diuretic, that work together to lower blood pressure. Abruptly discontinuing use of this medication can lead to serious side effects, including sharp chest pain, irregular heartbeat and possibly heart attack. You should not discontinue use without first talking to your doctor. Corzide may also cause dizziness or lightheadedness. Alcohol and some medications may exacerbate these side effects. You should not drive or operate machinery until you know how Corzide affects you. Corzide increases the skin's sensitivity to the sun, and you may burn more easily. Wear sunscreen and protective clothing when outside, and avoid sun lamps and tanning beds.
