Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Zestoretic is a combination of lisinopril and hydrochlorothiazide.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic and can cause fast heart beats as side effect.

So thumping can be a side effect.

Not a serious one but should be aware of.

High blood pressure is another cause.

You can start on the betablocker to counteract this side effect.

Please inform your doctor also.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
