Lopressor HCT (hydrochlorothiazide/metoprolol)

Interactions between your selected drugs

hydrochlorothiazide ↔ magnesium hydroxide

Applies to:Lopressor HCT (hydrochlorothiazide/metoprolol) and Aspirin Buffered (aluminum hydroxide/aspirin/calcium carbonate/magnesium hydroxide)

Talk to your doctor before using hydrochlorothiazide together with any kind of medication that has a laxative effect.

Drug Interaction Classification

The classifications below are a guideline only. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific patient is difficult to determine using this tool alone given the large number of variables that may apply.

Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.

Do not stop taking any medications without consulting your healthcare provider.
