|1||High Blood Pressure||Irritating ahem cough, aching joints/gout, dehydration, tiredness||I could not work out why I was so tired and sore. I was on an exercise program which was working wonderfully, and then I got extremely sore joints and such tiredness I had to give up. Turned out I was dehydrated. I'm left with an ache in my chest region. Stopped the drug and everything except chest pain has gone.||F||50||12 months ||1/9/2009||3||For Hypertension||Lots and lots of flushing! This med did wonders to lower my BP, but this flushing is awful. Everyone keeps asking me if I am sunburned.||F||45||9 months ||7/15/2007
ACCURETIC (HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE; QUINAPRIL HYDROCHLORIDE): This product is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This product contains 2 medications: quinapril and hydrochlorothiazide. Quinapril belongs to a class of drugs known as ACE inhibitors and works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a class of drugs known as diuretics/"water pills." It works by causing you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra salt and water.
