General Information :

Precaution : Before using Avapro, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs or have kidney disease, liver disease, congestive heart failure, or if you are dehydrated.  Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using Avapro.  Before using Avapro, tell your doctor if you are using any drugs such as a diuretic, digoxin, or a blood thinner.  Inform your doctor about any prescription, non-prescription, herbal medicines, or supplements that you use.

Warnings : To be sure this medication is helping, have regular blood pressure checks and do not miss any appointments.  In rare cases, Avapro may cause a condition where skeletal muscle tissue breaks down leading to kidney failure.  Call your doctor immediately if you experience muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, especially if you have symptoms of fever.   Avoid drinking alcohol while taking Avapro.  It can lower your blood pressure and possibly increase some of the side effects of the medication.  When taking Avapro, avoid getting up too fast as this may cause instability and dizziness.
