Effects of other drugs, drug classes and over-the-counter products on bumetanide

Effects of other drugs, drug classes and over-the-counter products on bumetanide

The following medications may interact with bumetanide:

  • Drugs With Nephrotoxic Potential – There has been no experience with the concurrent use of bumetanide with drugs known to have a nephrotoxic potential. Therefore, the simultaneous administration of these drugs should be avoided
  • Lithium – Lithium should generally not be given with diuretics because they reduce its renal clearance and add a high risk of lithium toxicity
  • Probenecid – Pretreatment with probenecid reduces both the natriuresis and hyperreninemia produced by bumetanide. Thus, probenecid should not be administered concurrently with bumetanide
  • Indomethacin – Indomethacin blunts increases in urine volume and sodium excretion so concurrent therapy with bumetanide is thus not recommended

Antihypertensives: bumetanide may potentiate the effect of various antihypertensive drugs, necessitating a reduction in the dosage of these drugs.
