Información de la droga para Enalapril Maleate Tablets, USP (Sandoz Inc.): Agents Increasing Serum Potassium

Ads
  • Enalapril attenuates potassium loss caused by thiazide-type diuretics. Potassiumsparing diuretics (e.g., spironolactone, triamterene, or amiloride), potassium supplements, or potassium-containing salt substitutes may lead to significant increases in serum potassium. Therefore, if concomitant use of these agents is indicated because of demonstrated hypokalemia, they should be used with caution and with frequent monitoring of serum potassium. Potassium sparing agents should generally not be used in patients with heart failure receiving enalapril.
