Ace inhibitors & diuretics
|Benazepril & HCTZ
(Lotensin HCT ®)
|Benazepril (HTN) range: 10-80 mg qd (Initial: 10mg po qd). HCTZ (Range): 12.5-50 mg per day. Lotensin HCT 10/12.5 or Lotensin HCT 20/12.5. The HCTZ dose should generally not be increased until 2-3 weeks have elapsed. Patients whose blood pressures are adequately controlled with 25 mg of daily HCTZ, but who experience significant potassium loss with this regimen, may achieve similar blood-pressure control without electrolyte disturbance if they are switched to Lotensin HCT 5/6.25.
Supplied: (5 mg/6.25 mg, 10 mg/12.5 mg, 20 mg/12.5 mg, 20 mg/25 mg)
|Captopril & HCTZ
|Adult (usual) Hypertension (HTN): initial, 1 tab (captopril 25 mg/HCTZ 15 mg) orally once daily. HTN: titration, allow 6-8 wk to achieve optimum antihypertensive effect - may administer daily dose in divided doses. HTN: maximum dose: 150 mg captopril and 50 mg HCTZ per day.

|Enalapril (Usual range): 10 to 40 mg per day administered in a single or two divided dose. HCTZ (range): 12.5 to 50 mg daily. A patient whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled with either enalapril or HCTZ monotherapy may be given Vaseretic 5-12.5 or Vaseretic 10-25. The HCTZ dose should generally not be increased until 2-3 weeks have elapsed. In general, patients do not require doses in excess of 20 mg of enalapril or 50 mg of HCTZ. The daily dosage should not exceed four tablets of Vaseretic 5-12.5 or two tablets of Vaseretic 10-25.

The HCTZ dose should generally not be increased until 2-3 weeks have elapsed. Maximum dose: 80/50 mg orally once daily. Patients whose blood pressures are adequately controlled with 25 mg of daily HCTZ, but who experience significant potassium loss with this regimen, may achieve similar or greater blood pressure control with less potassium loss if they are switched to 10/12.5. Dosage higher than lisinopril 80 mg and HCTZ 50 mg should not be used.

Total daily doses above 30 mg /50 mg a day have not been studied in hypertensive patients. Patients whose blood pressures are adequately controlled with 25 mg of HCTZ daily, but who experience significant potassium loss with this regimen, may achieve blood pressure control without electrolyte disturbance if they are switched to moexipril 3.75 mg/HCTZ 6.25 mg (one-half 7.5 mg /12.5 mg tablet). For patients who experience an excessive reduction in blood pressure with 7.5 mg /12.5 mg, the physician may consider prescribing moexipril 3.75 mg/HCTZ 6.25 mg.
