Viewer Question:My mother suffers from gout, and I wonder if some of her other medications (for high blood pressure, for example) might be aggravating her gout. Thank you.
Doctor's Response:We do not know what medications your mother is taking. Nevertheless, medications that are used to treat high blood pressure that can aggravate gout include diuretics (water pills), especially furosemide (Lasix) and hydrocholorothiazide (Dyazide, and others).
Thank you for your question.
