Blood Pressure Home > Tribenzor Drug Interactions

Neuromuscular-Blocking Medications
Tribenzor can make you more sensitive to the effects of neuromuscular-blocking medications. If you are taking Tribenzor and need a neuromuscular-blocker, your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely or change the dose of the neuromuscular-blocking medication.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Tribenzor 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, are taking diuretics (water pills), or are dehydrated, taking NSAIDs and Tribenzor together may cause kidney failure. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential drug interaction before taking these medications together.
  
Other Blood Pressure Medications
Taking Tribenzor in combination with other blood pressure medications may increase your risk of dangerously low blood pressure. If your blood pressure becomes too low, you may become dizzy, lightheaded, or faint. Only take these medications together with your healthcare provider's approval.
 
Potassium-Containing Products
Tribenzor may potentially increase your potassium level. If you are taking potassium (to treat low potassium levels), your potassium dose may need to be lowered, or you may need to stop taking potassium altogether. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Tribenzor with any potassium-containing product.
 
Potassium-Sparing Diuretics
Combining Tribenzor with potassium-sparing diuretics could increase your risk for high blood potassium (hyperkalemia). If your healthcare provider recommends taking these medications together, your blood potassium levels should be closely monitored.
 
Simvastatin
Tribenzor increases the level of simvastatin in the blood, increasing the risk of serious side effects of simvastatin. If these medications are combined, the simvastatin dosage should not exceed 20 mg per day.
