Can Altace interact with other medications or foods?

Tell your doctor if you are on a low-sodium diet before starting Altace (ramipril). Do not use salt substitutes or eat foods or supplements containing potassium without your doctor's permission. Altace may interact with the following: diuretics ("water pills") and potassium-sparing diuretics; aldosterone blockers; nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen; trimethoprim; and medicines containing gold, lithium or thiopurines. People who have diabetes or kidney disease should not take Altace along with the blood pressure drug aliskiren. Tell your doctor if you are taking any of these types of medications. You should also tell your doctor if you are receiving treatment for sensitivity to bee stings.
