Interactions between your drugs

Major

sodium biphosphate phenyl salicylate

Applies to: hyoscyamine / methenamine / methylene blue / phenyl salicylate / sodium biphosphate and hyoscyamine / methenamine / methylene blue / phenyl salicylate / sodium biphosphate

Bowel cleansing with sodium biphosphate can cause kidney failure, in some cases up to several months after the procedure. Although it rarely occurs, the risk is increased in individuals receiving treatment with phenyl salicylate, especially if they are also elderly or frail. You may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely use both medications. Combining these medications may also increase the risk of dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities. In severe cases, dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities can lead to irregular heart rhythm, seizures, and kidney problems. You should use sodium biphosphate exactly as prescribed by your doctor, and drink plenty of clear fluids before, during, and after the cleansing process to keep yourself hydrated. Your doctor may also recommend an electrolyte rehydration solution that you can use. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns. 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.
