Can I take Aceon if I'm on heparin?

If you take the blood pressure medication Aceon (perindopril) and also receive heparin, an injectable anticoagulant, it's possible for your potassium levels to become too high. This could put you at risk for potentially deadly heart arrhythmias. People with kidney disease or diabetes are at added risk of having this reaction. If you receive heparin while you're taking Aceon, your doctor will monitor the levels of potassium in your blood frequently.
