Drug interactions between Invokana and losartan
Interactions between your drugs
losartan ↔ canagliflozin
Applies to:losartan and Invokana (canagliflozin)
Canagliflozin may cause salt and water loss, which may increase the risk of dehydration and low blood pressure when used with losartan or similar medications. You may experience headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, and/or changes in pulse or heart rate. Use caution when getting up from a sitting or lying position, and let your doctor know if you develop these symptoms. In addition, combining these medications may increase the risk of hyperkalemia, or high blood potassium. In severe cases, hyperkalemia can lead to kidney failure, muscle paralysis, irregular heart rhythm, and cardiac arrest. You may be more likely to develop hyperkalemia while taking these medications if you are elderly or have kidney disease or advanced heart failure. Regular or long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or naproxen (Aleve) may also increase your risk. Talk to your doctor to see if you should limit consumption of potassium-rich foods such as tomatoes, raisins, figs, potatoes, lima beans, bananas, plantains, papayas, pears, cantaloupes, mangoes, and potassium-containing salt substitutes. You should seek medical attention if you experience nausea, vomiting, weakness, confusion, tingling of the hands and feet, 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.
