Why Are Olmesartan Medoxomil-Hydrochlorothiazide Interactions a Concern?

Norepinephrine
Norepinephrine is a medicine that is used to treat very low blood pressure. Olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide may affect norepinephrine's ability to raise blood pressure when these medicines are taken together.
 
Corticotropin
Taking corticotropin and olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide together may cause an electrolyte imbalance, especially with the levels of potassium in the blood. If you are taking corticotropin and olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or adjust your dose as needed, depending on your particular situation.
 
Muscle Relaxants
When olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide and a muscle relaxant are taken together, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended and increase the levels of muscle relaxant in the blood. In order to decrease the chances of this drug interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or change the muscle relaxant dose.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide can interact with NSAIDs in several ways. The combination could cause your blood pressure to increase or may cause swelling (edema), especially if you have congestive heart failure (CHF). If you are elderly, have kidney disease or kidney failure, or are dehydrated, taking NSAIDs and this medication together may cause kidney failure. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential drug interaction before taking these medications together.
