Drugs That Interfere With Eprosartan
More Detail on Drug Interactions With EprosartanThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when eprosartan is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Combining eprosartan with an ACE inhibitor may increase the risk for certain side effects, such as high blood potassium, kidney problems, or dangerously low blood pressure. These medications are sometimes used together with appropriate monitoring.
Taking eprosartan within 24 hours of receiving amifostine could lower your blood pressure to unsafe levels. Talk to your healthcare provider about this possible interaction if you receive amifostine treatment.
Combining eprosartan 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 eprosartan 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.
Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARBs)
Combining eprosartan (which is an ARB) with another ARB may increase the risk for certain side effects, such as high blood potassium, kidney problems, or dangerously low blood pressure. It would be highly unusual for a healthcare provider to recommend that a person take two different ARBs at the same time.
If you take eprosartan with eplerenone, the level of potassium in your blood may become too high. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your blood potassium level if you take these medications together.
