Should I Care About Irbesartan/HCTZ Interactions?

Trimethoprim
Combining irbesartan/HCTZ with trimethoprim, or a medication containing trimethoprim, could increase your risk for high blood potassium (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider may want to monitor your blood potassium levels if you take these medications together.
 
Yohimbe
Yohimbe may decrease the effectiveness of irbesartan/HCTZ, meaning that it may not work as well to lower your blood pressure. If you take irbesartan/HCTZ, do not take yohimbe without first talking to your healthcare provider.
