Drugs That Can Interfere With Moduretic

Moduretic Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Moduretic is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
ACE Inhibitors
Combining Moduretic with ACE inhibitors can increase the risk of high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly during treatment.
 
Alcohol
Drinking alcohol while taking Moduretic can increase your risk of low blood pressure, especially when sitting or standing up suddenly. Talk to your healthcare provider about combining alcohol with Moduretic.
 
Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers
Taking Moduretic with ARBs can increase your risk of high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly if you are taking both of these medications.
 
Barbiturates
If Moduretic is combined with a barbiturate, this can increase your risk of low blood pressure, especially when sitting or standing up suddenly. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these drugs together.
 
Other Blood Pressure Medicines
When taking Moduretic with another high blood pressure medication, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to minimize the chances of this drug interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and change the dose of either medicine.
 
Cholestyramine
Cholestyramine can decrease the absorption of Moduretic into your blood, perhaps making it less effective. In order to avoid this interaction, it is usually best to take these medications at different times of the day.
