Sinoretik is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure as well as patients who have just had a heart attack. Sinoretik belongs to a class of medicines called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Lisinopril tablets help to lower your blood pressure by widening your blood vessels.
The active ingredient present in Sinoretik is Lisinopril and Hydrochlorothiazide.
Lisinopril is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), congestive heart failure, and to improve survival after a heart attack. It is in a group of drugs called ACE inhibitors (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme).
The initial adult dose is 10 mg once daily. Titrate up to 40 mg daily based on blood pressure response. Initiate patients on diuretics at 5 mg once daily. In the case of pediatric patients with glomerular filtration rate greater than 30 mL/min/1.73m2 the initial dose in patients 6 years of age and older is 0.07 mg per kg (up to 5 mg total) once daily.
Take Sinoretik exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take Sinoretik in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results from this medicine. Take each dose with a full glass of water with or without food. Drink plenty of water each day while you are taking Sinoretik.
Vomiting, diarrhea, or heavy sweating can cause you to become dehydrated. This can lead to very low blood pressure, electrolyte disorders, or kidney failure while you are taking it. Your blood pressure will need to be checked on a regular basis to be sure Sinoretik is helping your condition. Your kidney or liver function may also need to be tested. Do not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.
If you need to have any type of surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are taking Sinoretik. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using this medicine even if you feel fine. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
