Prinivil Drug Interactions

Potassium-Sparing Diuretics
If Prinivil and a potassium-sparing diuretic are taken together, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended and/or increase the levels of potassium in your blood. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress more closely to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Lithium
If Prinivil and lithium are taken at the same time, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended. This can increase the levels of lithium in the blood. As a result, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your serum lithium levels more frequently.
 
Diabetes Medicines
If diabetes medicines and Prinivil are taken together, your body may metabolize the diabetes medication differently than intended, especially if you also have kidney failure. This is most likely to happen during the first month of treatment with Prinivil. Your healthcare provider may monitor your blood sugars more closely to make sure that you are on the correct dose for both of these medications.
 
Gold
If you are on liquid gold therapy, it is possible that Prinivil will interact with the liquid gold. Symptoms of this interaction may include facial flushing, nausea, vomiting, and extremely low blood pressure. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience any of these symptoms.
