Maxzide Drug Interactions

Maxzide Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Maxzide is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
ACE Inhibitors
Combining Maxzide with ACE inhibitors can increase your risk of high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly during treatment.
 
Amiloride
Maxzide should not be taken with amiloride. Taking these two medications together increases your risk of high potassium levels (hyperkalemia).
 
Amphotericin B
Amphotericin B can increase your chances of low potassium levels when combined with Maxzide. Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels during treatment, and may need to take steps to correct it.
 
Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers
Combining Maxzide with ARBs can increase your risk of high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly during treatment.
 
Other Blood Pressure Medicines
When taking Maxzide with another high blood pressure medication, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to minimize the chances of this Maxzide drug interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely or change the dose of either medicine.
 
Corticosteroids
Taking Maxzide with corticosteroids may increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels during treatment, and may need to take steps to correct them.
 
Digoxin
Maxzide should be used with caution in people taking digoxin. It can cause low potassium levels (hypokalemia) or high potassium levels (hyperkalemia), both of which can be especially dangerous for people taking digoxin.
