Renal Dose Adjustments

The usual regimens of therapy with hydrochlorothiazide-lisinopril need not be adjusted as long as patient creatinine clearance is 30 mL/min or greater. In patients with more severe renal impairment, loop diuretics are preferred to thiazides, so hydrochlorothiazide-lisinopril is not recommended.

Liver Dose Adjustments

Thiazide diuretics should be used with caution in patients with hepatic impairment.

Dose Adjustments

The hydrochlorothiazide dose should generally not be increased until 2 to 3 weeks have elapsed.
