Interactions between your drugs

Major

arginine finerenone

Applies to: L-Arginine (arginine) and finerenone

Using finerenone together with arginine may increase potassium levels in the blood. High levels of potassium can develop into a condition known as hyperkalemia, which in severe cases can lead to kidney failure, muscle paralysis, irregular heart rhythm, and cardiac arrest. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring to safely use both medications. You should seek medical attention if you experience nausea, vomiting, weakness, confusion, tingling of the hands and feet, feelings of heaviness in the legs, a weak pulse, or a slow or irregular heartbeat, as these may be symptoms of hyperkalemia. 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.

Drug and food interactions

Major

finerenone food

Applies to: finerenone

Finerenone may be taken with or without food. However, you should avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice during treatment with this medication. Grapefruit juice may significantly increase the blood levels and effects of finerenone. This can increase the risk of developing hyperkalemia, or high levels of potassium in the blood, which in severe cases can lead to kidney failure, muscle paralysis, irregular heart rhythm, and cardiac arrest. You may be more likely to develop hyperkalemia during treatment with finerenone if you are elderly, dehydrated, or have kidney disease, diabetes, or advanced heart failure. You should also avoid potassium-containing salt substitutes or over-the-counter potassium supplements during treatment with finerenone unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Seek medical attention if you experience nausea, vomiting, weakness, confusion, tingling of the hands and feet, feelings of heaviness in the legs, a weak pulse, or a slow or irregular heartbeat, as these may be symptoms of hyperkalemia. 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.
