adding lisinopril to regimen
« on: October 23, 2007, 03:18:06 PM »
For years I've been taking both Epivir and Videx EC together in the early morning when the (not flat) tummy's empty. Can I add lisinopril to this mix, or should I wait an hour or so? Thanks.

The risk of an interaction is low.  However, it ain't properly studied.

About 8% of people using both ddI and an ACE inhibitor like lisinopril have reported a reaction between the two, generally a minor problem.  This is reported, not confirmed...most of the reports specific to lisinopril also involved another drug. Very difficult to confirm these things, and no indication if they took them together or apart.

Best, belt and braces wise, to ask an HIV pharmacist.

Thanks, Matt (for the P.S., too). I wish I did know an HIV pharmacist. I'll also ask the prescribing physician, when I can see him again.
