How Telmisartan/Hydrochlorothiazide Interactions Affect You

Corticosteroids
Taking corticosteroids with telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide may cause an electrolyte imbalance, especially with the levels of potassium in the blood. If you are taking a corticosteroid with telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or adjust your dosages as needed.
 
Norepinephrine
Norepinephrine is a medicine that is used to treat very low blood pressure (hypotension). Telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide may affect norepinephrine's ability to raise blood pressure when the drugs are taken together. Talk to your healthcare provider about taking these two medicines together.
 
Corticotropin
Taking corticotropin with telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide may cause an electrolyte imbalance, especially with the levels of potassium in the blood. If you are taking corticotropin with telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or adjust your dosages as needed.
 
Muscle Relaxants
If you are taking both telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide and a muscle relaxant, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended and increase the muscle relaxant levels 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
When taking NSAIDs with telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide, the NSAIDs may decrease the ability of telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide to lower blood pressure. Talk with your healthcare provider about using NSAIDs with telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide.
