Drugs That Can Interfere With Telmisartan/Amlodipine
More Detail on Drug Interactions With Telmisartan/AmlodipineThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when telmisartan/amlodipine is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Taking an ACE inhibitor with telmisartan/amlodipine may increase your risk for severe low blood pressure (hypotension), high blood potassium (hyperkalemia), and kidney problems. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider should closely monitor your blood pressure, potassium levels, and kidney function.
Combining telmisartan/amlodipine 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 telmisartan/amlodipine 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)
Telmisartan/amlodipine contains an ARB (telmisartan) and should generally not be combined with other ARBs, as this could increase the risk for high blood potassium or other side effects, such as kidney problems and very low blood pressure.
