Hello mercya17. Lisinopril
can cause severe, possibly fatal harm to an unborn baby if used during pregnancy
. It is advised to prevent pregnancy while on lisinopril. I would advise discussing your plan for pregnancy and your medications with your gyn physician. Hydrochlorothiazide
uld be used only when needed. You need to discuss changing these medications if you are planning pregnancy and you need to discuss these medications with your ob-gyn before pregnancy. It is also advised to start taking folic acid
, which prevents neural tube defects, prior to pregnancy.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
