Exna (benzthiazide) Disease Interactions

There are 2 disease interactions with Exna (benzthiazide):

Moderate

Thiazides (Includes Exna) ↔ Asthma

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Asthma

Thiazide diuretics should be used with caution in patients with history of bronchial asthma as sensitivity reactions may occur.

Moderate

Thiazides (Includes Exna) ↔ Hyperuricemia

Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility

Applies to: Gout

Thiazide diuretics decrease the rate of uric acid excretion. Hyperuricemia occurs frequently but is usually asymptomatic and rarely leads to clinical gout except in patients with a history of gout or chronic renal failure. Therapy with thiazide diuretics should be administered cautiously in such patients.

Drug Interaction Classification

The classifications below are a general guideline only. It is difficult to determine the relevance of a particular drug interaction to any individual given the large number of variables.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No information available.
