More Information on Interactions With Aliskiren

ACE Inhibitors
Combining aliskiren with an ACE inhibitor may increase your risk of high blood potassium (hyperkalemia), which can be a serious problem. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider should monitor your potassium levels.
 
Combining these medications may also increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) and kidney failure.

Combining these medications may also increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension) and kidney failure. Aliskiren should never be combined with an ARB in people with diabetes, because they may have a higher risk for these complications.
