chlorthalidone amphotericin B lipid complex

Applies to: atenolol / chlorthalidone and amphotericin b lipid complex

Using amphotericin B lipid complex together with chlorthalidone may increase the risk of a condition called hypokalemia, or low blood potassium. In severe cases, it can lead to muscle weakness, paralysis, breathing and swallowing difficulties (due to muscle paralysis), and irregular heart rhythm. Let your doctor know if you experience nausea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal cramping, confusion, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, muscle weakness, muscle cramps, numbness or tingling, rapid heart beat, chest pain, and/or swelling in the legs or feet, as these may be symptoms of hypokalemia. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
