Is it O.K. to take Quinipril and Avalide together?

I was told there could be a problem taking Quinipril and Avalide at the same time on a consistent basis because they are basically in the same class. Any truth to this? ## Is it ok to take magnesium while also taking quinipril? ## Yes, usually, you should take one or the other, though you may be able to take other blood pressure and cardiac medications, at the same time, according to FDA reports. Barb, it really depends on your blood pressure levels, since the FDA warns that Magnesium may also lower it, and cause drowsiness. How are you both doing?

pink oval pill with imprint 287

I found a pink capsule shaped pill. Its pretty big and its its marked 287 on one side and nothing on the other please fill me in what this is ## @Tyson, The only relevant matches I'm finding are oval pink colored pills, imprinted with "2875" or "2876". There's no other numbers on the backside of each pill, but there is a faint imprint of a heart symbol. These particular pills are identified as an antihypertensive medication known as Avalide; containing hydrochlorothiazide + irbesartan. So I have to ask if there's any chance that the marking may have been misinterpreted due to possible fading/degradation of the pill itself from storage conditions or otherwise? Please post back if you have additional details regarding this and I'll see if I can dig any deep...

avalide dosage vs losartan dosage

I was taking Avalide 300/25. It became unavailable and I was switched to Losartan 100/25. Is this the same dosage? Also what color are the Losartan suppose to be. My Losartan are yellow but I also read were they are suppose to be white. ## Hello, CT! How are you? Yes, the Losartan is stronger than the Irbesartan in the Avalide, so this is an equivalent dosage. And since this is a generic, it is actually available in both yellow and white. Typical side effects to this medication may include nausea, easier bruising, headache, dehydration and increased urination. Is there anything else I can help with?

Can i use the losartan potassium instead of avalide 300/12.5? ## Hello, Emily! How are you?

Avalide And Losartan

My insurance company insisted that I change from Avalide 150mg/HCT 12.5mg to Lorsartan 50mg/HCT 12.5mg. Are the dosages equivilant? ## Yes, that is the equivalent dosage. Avalide contains Irbesartan with the Hydrochlorothiazide and the Losartan is actually a stronger medication, so it only takes 50mgso f it to equal the 150mgs of the Irbesartan. Is there anything else I can help with?
