Hi Beth,

From what I could gather, Mucinex does not have interactions with any of those medications. Oddly enough though, my findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions between Hydrochlorothiazide/Lisinopril and Metformin. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of:

"Before taking hydrochlorothiazide, tell your doctor if you also use Metformin. Hydrochlorothiazide can cause high blood sugar and interfere with glucose control. You may need a dose adjustment and you may need to check your blood sugar more often if you take both medications. Hydrochlorothiazide can also cause lactic acidosis while you are using Metformin. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include unusual muscle pain and weakness, trouble breathing, fast or uneven heart rate, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, and numbness or cold feeling in your arms or legs. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these symptoms, even if they are only mild. It is important that you tell your healthcare provider about all other medications that you are using including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using your medications without first talking to your doctor first."

"Using Lisinopril together with Metformin may increase the effects of Metformin on lowering blood sugar. This could cause your blood sugar levels to get too low. Signs of low blood sugar include headache, hunger, weakness, dizziness, drowsiness, nervousness, sweating, confusion, and tremor. Talk with your doctor before using Lisinopril together with Metformin. You may need a dose adjustment and you may need to check your blood sugar more often. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor."

I hope this information helps!
