Avapro Interactions

More Detail About Avapro Interactions

The following paragraphs explain in more detail how specific drugs can interact negatively with Avapro.
 
Aliskiren
Combining Avapro with aliskiren may increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension), fainting, kidney problems (including kidney failure), and dangerously high potassium levels in the blood (hyperkalemia). In general, such combinations are usually avoided. If it is necessary to take such medications together, very close monitoring will be required. Aliskiren and Avapro should never be combined in people with diabetes, because they may have a higher risk for these complications. Also, this combination is not recommended for people with moderate to severe kidney problems.
 
ACE Inhibitors
Combining Avapro with an ACE inhibitor may increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension), fainting, kidney problems (including kidney failure), and dangerously high potassium levels in the blood (hyperkalemia). In general, such combinations are usually avoided. If it is necessary to take such medications together, very close monitoring will be required.
  
Diuretics
When taking Avapro with a diuretic, your blood pressure may decrease too much. This is more likely to occur when Avapro is first started. In order to decrease the chances of this occurring, your healthcare provider may change the dosages of either medicine, start you on a lower dose of Avapro, and/or monitor you more closely.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Avapro can interact with NSAIDs in several ways. The combination could cause your blood pressure to increase or may cause swelling (edema), especially if you have congestive heart failure (CHF). If you are elderly, have kidney disease or kidney failure, or are taking a diuretic ("water pill") or are dehydrated, taking NSAIDs and Avapro together may cause kidney failure. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential drug interaction before taking these medications together.
