Interactions
The adrenal glucocorticoids, in particular those with more prominent mineralocorticoids, adrenocorticotropic hormone and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), can promote urinary potassium excretion and reduce the potency of potassium when combined.
Anticholinergic drugs can aggravate the gastrointestinal stimulating effects of oral potassium salts, especially potassium chloride.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics aggravate the gastrointestinal reactions of oral potassium salts.
Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and cyclosporine A can inhibit aldosterone secretion and reduce urinary potassium excretion, so hyperkalemia is prone to occur when combined.
Heparin can inhibit the synthesis of aldosterone, reduce urinary potassium excretion, prone to hyperkalemia in combination. In addition, heparin can increase the chance of gastrointestinal bleeding.
Sustained-release potassium salts can inhibit the absorption of vitamin B12 in the intestine.
