Durlaza Pharmacokinetics

See Literature

Durlaza Interactions


Increased bleeding risk with anticoagulants, antiplatelets, or chronic NSAID use. Do not take 2hrs before or 1hr after consuming alcohol. Dual inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) may increase risk of hypotension, hyperkalemia, renal impairment; monitor renal function esp. if elderly, volume depleted or compromised renal function. NSAIDs may attenuate antihypertensive effects of RAS inhibitors. May affect anticonvulsants (eg, phenytoin, valproic acid). May potentiate methotrexate; possible bone marrow toxicity esp. in elderly or renally impaired. Concomitant other NSAIDs may increase renal impairment. Ibuprofen or nonselective NSAIDs may interfere with antiplatelet effect of low-dose aspirin. Give ibuprofen 400mg at least 2–4hrs after Durlaza; wait 8hrs after ibuprofen dose before giving aspirin.
