Dyrenium Drug Interactions
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Dyrenium is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Combining Dyrenium with ACE inhibitors can increase the risk of high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly if you are taking these medications together.
Dyrenium should not be taken with amiloride. Combining these two medications increases your risk of developing high potassium levels (hyperkalemia).
Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers
Combining Dyrenium with ARBs can increase the risk of developing high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly during treatment if you are taking these medications together.
Blood Pressure Medicines
When taking Dyrenium with high blood pressure medications, your blood pressure may decrease too much. In order to minimize the chances of this Dyrenium drug interaction occurring, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and change the dose of either medicine.
Because Dyrenium may increase blood sugar levels, your healthcare provider may need to increase your dose of insulin or oral diabetes medication.
Dyrenium should be used with caution in people taking digoxin. It can cause high potassium levels (hyperkalemia), which can be especially dangerous for people taking digoxin.
Taking Dyrenium with lithium may increase the level of lithium in your blood, possibly increasing your chance of side effects. In general, people taking lithium are usually not prescribed diuretics, including Dyrenium. Depending on your individual situation, your healthcare provider may need to monitor your lithium level more closely and/or change your lithium dose.
