Drug Interactions With Torsemide

Torsemide Interactions Explained

 
Aminoglycoside Antibiotics
Torsemide should not be combined with aminoglycoside antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. Taking these two medications together can increase the chance of permanent hearing loss.
 
Other Blood Pressure Medicines
When taking torsemide with another high blood pressure medication, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to decrease the chances of this torsemide interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or change the dose of either medicine.
 
Cholestyramine (Prevalite, Questran, Questran Light)
Cholestyramine may decrease the absorption of torsemide into the body, perhaps making it less effective. If you are taking both of these medications together, it is best to take them at different times of the day.
 
Corticosteroids
Taking torsemide with corticosteroids may increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels and may need to take steps to correct your potassium levels.
 
Digoxin (Digitek, Lanoxin)
Torsemide should be used carefully in people taking digoxin. Torsemide can cause low potassium levels (hypokalemia), which can be especially dangerous for people taking digoxin.
 
Lithium (Eskalith, Lithobid)
Taking torsemide with lithium may increase the level of lithium in your blood, increasing your chance of side effects. In general, it is not usually recommended to take lithium with diuretics, including torsemide. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor your lithium level more closely and/or change your lithium dose.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Taking torsemide with NSAIDs can make torsemide less effective and may increase your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to increase your dose of torsemide or may suggest an alternative to NSAIDs.
