What is Accuretic?
Accuretic is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer. Accuretic contains hydrochlorothiazide a thiazide diuretic, and quinapril an ACE inhibitor (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor). Accuretic is used for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). Lowering high blood pressure may reduce the risk of fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events such as strokes or heart attacks.
What doses of Accuretic are available?
Accuretic is available in tablet form, in the following doses: Accuretic 10 mg/12.5 mg – 10 mg quinapril hydrochloride and 12.5 mg hydrochlorothiazide per tablet, Accuretic 20 mg/12.5 mg – 20 mg quinapril hydrochloride and 12.5 mg hydrochlorothiazide per tablet.
You can become dehydrated while taking Accuretic. This may lead to very low blood pressure, electrolyte disorders, or kidney problems. Have your blood pressure checked often. Be aware that Accuretic also contains magnesium which may interfere with the absorption of other medications.
Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
