How does Enalaprilat Injection interact with other medications?

Patients using Enalaprilat injection while taking oral diabetes medications should be monitored for changes in blood sugar levels, because doing so can lead to an unsafe drop in your blood sugar level. Avoid taking potassium supplements because they can cause fatigue, strange skin sensations or an irregular heartbeat. Diuretics can interact with Enalaprilat injection and cause dizziness. Use caution when taking any type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with Enalaprilat injection, because your risk of kidney damage increases.

Avoid taking dextran sulfate, lithium, thiopurines or medications that contain gold. Furthermore, do not take Enalaprilat injection with another blood pressure medication. You should not consume alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs while receiving Enalaprilat injection. It is important to discuss with your doctor any medicines or conditions that may affect how Enalaprilat injection works in your body. Prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs and herbal remedies can interact with Enalaprilat injection.
