Bumex Drug Interactions

Bumex Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Bumex is taken with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglycoside Antibiotics
Bumex should not be combined with aminoglycoside antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. Taking these two medications together can increase the chance of permanent hearing loss.
 
Blood Pressure Medicines
When taking Bumex with a medication for high blood pressure, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to minimize the chances of this Bumex interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or adjust the dose of either medicine.
 
Corticosteroids
Taking Bumex with corticosteroids may increase your risk of low potassium levels (hypokalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels and may need to take steps to correct these levels.
 
Digoxin
Bumex should be used carefully in people taking digoxin. It can cause low potassium levels (hypokalemia), which can be especially dangerous for people taking digoxin.
 
Lithium
Taking Bumex with lithium may increase the level of lithium in your blood, which may increase your chance of side effects. In general, people are not advised to take lithium with diuretics, including Bumex. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor your lithium level more closely and/or adjust your lithium dose to prevent this interaction from occurring if the two drugs must be taken together.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Taking Bumex with NSAIDs can make Bumex less effective and may increase your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to increase your dose of Bumex or may suggest an alternative to NSAIDs to keep these interactions from occurring.
