Prinzide Patient Information Including Side Effects

Brand Names: Prinzide, Zestoretic

Generic Name: hydrochlorothiazide and lisinopril (Pronunciation: HYE droe KLOR oh THYE a zide and lye SIN oh pril)

What is hydrochlorothiazide and lisinopril (Prinzide)?

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention.

Lisinopril is in a group of drugs called ACE inhibitors. ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. Lisinopril lowers blood pressure and also relieves symptoms of fluid retention.

The combination of hydrochlorothiazide and lisinopril is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure).
