Ammonul contains two salts: sodium benzoate and sodium phenylacetate. If you are taking Ammonul, your doctor injects it into your bloodstream. There, the salts work to remove excess ammonia in your body. Your body makes two amino acids from the ammonia. The ammonia-rich amino acids react with the salts and make their way to your kidneys. The kidneys then remove them in your urine.

Some medications can interfere with this process:
  • Gout medications (probenecid) may prevent your kidneys from eliminating the ammonia-rich amino acid-salt compounds.
  • Antibiotics (penicillins) may prevent your kidneys from eliminating the ammonia-rich amino acid-salt compounds.
  • Mood-stabilizing drugs (valproic acid) may increase ammonia levels in your blood. This may make Ammonul less effective.
Tell your doctor about your other medications before taking Ammonul.
