Q: My husband is taking Sedeten for high blood pressure. Can he drink wine or vodka?

A: Generally speaking, drug interactions fall into three main categories: Drug-drug (i.e., prescription, over-the-counter, herbals, dietary supplements) interactions occur when two or more drugs react with each other. Drug-diet (food/drink) interactions result from drugs reacting with foods or drinks. Drug-disease interactions may occur when an existing medical condition makes certain drugs potentially harmful. A review of the prescribing information for Sedeten does not specifically cite a drug interaction with alcohol and Sedeten (Cozaar), an angiotensin reuptake inhibitor prescribed for hypertension. However, alcohol can increase the side effects of Sedeten. The common side effects with Sedeten are dizziness, headache, insomnia, muscle pain, cough, fatigue, orthostatic hypotension, and hypotension. Alcohol can cause dehydration and increase the risk for orthostatic hypotension which is a sudden drop in blood pressure upon arising from a sitting position. Symptoms of orthostatic hypotension include dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting. The extent of orthostatic hypotension will vary between individuals and depends on other prescription medications, non-prescription medications, dietary supplements, nutritional supplements and current medical conditions. This is not a complete list of side effects for Sedeten. For more specific information, consult with your doctor or pharmacist for guidance based on your health status and current medications, particularly before taking any action. Consuelo Worley, RPh

Getting the most from your treatment

  • Try to keep your regular appointments with your doctor. This is so your progress can be monitored. Your doctor may want you to have some blood tests from time to time to check on your kidneys, and also how much potassium is in your blood.
  • If you buy any medicines, check with a pharmacist that they are suitable to take with Sedeten. This is because some anti-inflammatory painkillers (such as aspirin and ibuprofen) can interfere with the way it works, and also may increase the risk of side-effects.
  • It is very important that you follow any dietary and lifestyle advice that you have been given by your doctor, such as eating a healthy diet, not smoking, and taking regular exercise.
  • If you drink alcohol, ask your doctor for advice. Your doctor may recommend that you do not drink alcohol while you are on Sedeten because it will increase the risk of side-effects, such as feeling dizzy or faint.
  • Try to avoid salt substitutes which contain potassium. This is because the substitutes will increase the amount of potassium in your blood and this can cause problems.
  • If you are having an operation or dental treatment, tell the person carrying out the treatment that you are taking Sedeten. This is because your blood pressure may drop too low if you are given some anaesthetics.
  • Treatment with Sedeten is usually long-term unless you experience an adverse effect. Continue to take the tablets regularly, unless you are advised otherwise by your doctor.

If you are also taking hydrochlorothiazide in combination with this medicine

  • Studies have suggested that taking higher doses of hydrochlorothiazide for long periods of time may increase the risk of certain skin cancers.
  • Tell your doctor if you have ever been treated for skin cancer before.
  • Tell your doctor about any new or changed moles or worrying marks on your skin.
  • Use a sunscreen in strong sunlight. Do not use sunbeds.

How much will I take?

The dose of Sedeten you take depends on why you need the medicine. Take it as instructed by your doctor.

Usually, adults take:

  • 50mg to 100mg once a day to treat high blood pressure and to protect their kidneys
  • 12.5mg to 150mg once a day for heart failure

The dose may be lower if you've recently lost body fluids (for example, because of diarrhoea or being sick) or you're over the age of 75.

If your child needs Sedeten, your doctor will usually use your child's weight to work out the right dose.

What Are Warnings and Precautions for Sedeten?

  • Discontinue as soon as possible when pregnancy is detected; drug affects renin-angiotensin system, causing oligohydramnios, which may result in fetal injury or death
  • This medication contains Sedeten. Do not take Cozaar if you are allergic to Sedeten or any ingredients contained in this drug
  • Keep out of reach of children. In case of overdose, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately

  • Hypersensitivity

Effects of Drug Abuse

  • Increases risks of low blood pressure and abnormal potassium levels in the blood
  • See also "What Are Side Effects Associated with Using Sedeten?”

  • See also "What Are Side Effects Associated with Using Sedeten?”

  • Rapid swelling, volume-depletion, severe congestive heart failure, hepatic or renal impairment
  • Correct volume or salt depletion prior to administration
  • Increases risks of low blood pressure and abnormal potassium levels in the blood
  • Monitor renal function and potassium levels in susceptible patients
  • Discontinue immediately if patient is pregnant; potential risk of congenital malformations
  • Use with caution in renal artery stenosis, and avoid in bilateral renal arterystenosis
  • Renal impairment reported
  • Increased heart failure-related morbidity in patients receiving angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) and beta-blockers concomitantly; such combination therapy is not recommended
  • Dual blockade of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (an angiotensin-receptor blocker plus an ACE inhibitor) in patients with established atheroscleroticdisease, heart failure, or diabetes with end-organ damage is associated with a higher frequency of low blood pressure, fainting, abnormal potassium levels, and altered renal function (including acute renal failure) in comparison with use of a single renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system agent; limit dual blockade to individually defined cases with close monitoring of renal function; closely monitor blood pressure
  • Risk of severe allergic reactions or rapid swelling

Pregnancy and Lactation with Sedeten

  • Use Sedeten in LIFE-THREATNING emergencies when no safer drug is available. There is positive evidence of human fetal risk
  • Use of Sedeten or other drugs that act on the renin-angiotensin system during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy reduces renal function and increases fetal and neonatal morbidity and death. Resulting levels of low amniotic fluid can be associated with fetal lung underdevelopment and skeletal deformations. Potential neonatal adverse effects include skull underdevelopment, failure of the kidneys to produce urine, low blood pressure, kidney failure, and death
  • When pregnancy is detected, discontinue of Sedeten as soon as possible
  • It is unknown if Sedeten is excreted in milk; therefore use of Sedeten is not recommended when lactating. Consult with a physician

Rated Sedeten (Cozaar) for Hypertension Report

I'm a 48 year old male and I've been on Micardis 80mg for about 10 years. Micardis is the perfect BP med for me. 3 weeks ago the Kroger Pharmacy that fills my meds was out of Micardis so my Doc prescribed me Sedeten 50mg. Within two or three days I started throwing up and the worst nausea ever. I missed four days of work because I could not stop dry heaving. About a week in I started having a pain just to the right of my navel and then my lower right stomach started killing. I went back to my Doc thinking I had Appendicitis and with all the symptoms i was having she thought Appendicitis also. She scheduled me for a CAT scan (I have no insurance) I was putting off the scan until the pain just got unbearable. Then my feet and lower back started to hurt. I Google Sedeten and it brought me to this page. I now see that Sedeten is probably the culprit. It’s been 24 hours since the last pill and all the symptoms are still there but seen to be a little better. I will update in a week. They should take Sedeten off the market.
