Taking both the high blood pressure medication Aceon (perindopril) and the immunosuppressant drug cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune) could dangerously elevate your potassium levels. Although this is a rare side effect of taking both drugs, it puts you at risk for developing a potentially deadly heart rhythm problem. People with kidney disease or diabetes are at added risk for this problem. If you're using both medications, your doctor should regularly monitor the level of potassium in your blood.
