Monopril HCT Description

If you are already dealing with hypertension and your current drug is not effective at lowering your blood pressure, talk to your doctor about Monopril HCT. This is a combination medicine that is usually not offered as an initial therapy. One of the drugs is Fosinopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. The other is HCTZ, or hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic. Together, these active ingredients can help lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, or kidney damage. It is still important for you to eat healthier, be active, and see your doctor regularly to monitor your blood pressure.

The Active Ingredients Work Differently to Achieve the Same Goal

When taken as directed, Monopril HCT acts in 2 ways. The ACE inhibitor will prevent the angiotensin converting enzyme from producing angiotensin ll, another enzyme that constricts blood vessels and causes pressure as the blood flow is forced through veins and arteries. This action will allow your blood vessels to remain open and proper blood flow is restored so your pressure decreases.

HCTZ works to interfere with the movement of sodium and water across certain cells located in your kidneys. The outcome is that you will urinate more and pass sodium and the extra fluid from your blood which will help to reduce your blood pressure.

Hidden Dangers of Undiagnosed/Untreated Hypertension

You cannot see inside your body to know that your arteries are being damaged by the intense force of blood flow. The damaged areas are now perfect places for plaque to become hung up on. As this build-up progresses, your blood flow can be cut off and you have a heart attack. Or a blood clot or plaque can break off and travel to your brain, causing a stroke.

Hypertension develops over time and does not, for the majority of people, display any signs or symptoms to alert you that something is wrong. Regular check-ups are important and more so as you become older. Monopril HCT is not a cure for hypertension, but it can help reduce your risk of injuring other organs.

Before Monopril HCT is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking Monopril HCT as it may be harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Explain other OTC or Rx meds you currently take or use, including herbal, dietary, or vitamin supplements that may interfere with how Monopril HCT will work or affect you.

Monopril HCT Precautions

If you become ill with vomiting and diarrhea or you are sweating profusely, Monopril HCT can cause you to become dehydrated and blood pressure may drop too low. You could experience extreme thirst, dry mouth, irregular heartbeat, and/or muscle weakness. Contact your doctor right away for further instructions should this occur. Until you know how Monopril HCT affects you, avoid driving or performing any task that requires your full attention. Keep all medicine out of children’s reach and never share with anyone else.
