►  Drug Interaction : Drug interaction of Telmisartan is with , Potassium -Sparing Diuretics , , NSAIDS,  NA

  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  The antihypertensive effects of losartan may be potentiated by drugs or other agents that lower blood pressure. An additive hyperkalaemic effect is possible with potassium supplements, potassium-sparing diuretics, or other drugs that can cause hyperkalaemia; losartan and potassium-sparing diuretics should not generally be given together. NSAIDs should be used with caution in patients taking losartan as the risk of renal impairment may be increased, particularly in those who are inadequately hydrated; use of NSAIDs may also attenuate the hypotensive effect of losartan. Losartan and some other angiotensin II receptor antagonists are metabolised by cytochrome P450 isoenzymes and interactions may occur with drugs that affect these enzymes.,
