Lozol Drug Interactions
When you take other blood pressure medications, lithium, or digoxin with Lozol, drug interactions can occur. These interactions may lead to extremely low blood pressure, cause low potassium levels, or increase the drug levels in your blood (which increases your risk of side effects). To minimize your risk of developing Lozol interactions, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about other medicines you are taking.
Lozol® (indapamide) can potentially interact with a few of other medicines. Some of these medicines that may lead to Lozol interactions include:
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Lozol is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Other Blood Pressure Medicines
When taking Lozol with another high blood pressure medication, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to decrease the risk of developing this Lozol interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or change the dose of either medicine. When adding another blood pressure medication to Lozol, your healthcare provider should generally start the other blood pressure medication at a lower dose (usually half the usual dosage).
Digoxin (Digitek, Lanoxin)
Lozol should be used carefully in people taking digoxin. Lozol can cause low potassium levels (hypokalemia), which can be especially dangerous for people taking digoxin.
