Possible Interaction: Potassium and Triamterene



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Acetazolamide produced slight hypokalemia and provoked attacks of weakness whereas triamterene increased potassium levels significantly.
Neurology  •  1981  |  View Paper
Baseline potassium exeretion did not increase when furosemide was given alone, but potassium excretion fell when 50 mg or 100 mg of triamterene was also given.
Clinical pharmacology and therapeutics  •  1977  |  View Paper
By inhibiting the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) in the cortical collecting duct, triamterene reduces potassium secretion , thus reducing the risk of hypokalemia.
Journal of General Internal Medicine  •  2015  |  View Paper
Patients given triamterene showed a rise in potassium levels in plasma and cells and in the sodium efflux rate constant.
British medical journal  •  1976  |  View Paper
Triamterene not only enhances the natriuretic property of furosemide but also accentuates potassium conservation.
Archives of internal medicine  •  1969  |  View Paper
The triamterene induced increase of plasma potassium concentration may contribute to the antitoxic effect, however, the effect persisted after the decrease of plasma potassium concentration (by addition of NaHCO3) to pretreatment values.

Amiloride and triamterene alone inhibited distal tubular sodium reabsorption and potassium secretion , and, when given with one of the loop diuretics, suppressed both the kaliuresis and the increased acid and ammonium excretion induced by the latter agents.

Potassium elimination decreased significantly when threshold triamterene dosages were added.
