Rifampicin and fluconazole diminish levels of dynamic metabolite of Losartan Potassium. Concomitant utilize of Losartan Potassium and hydrochlorothiazide may lead to potentiation of the antihypertensive impacts. Concomitant utilize of potassium-sparing diuretics (eg, spironolactone, triamterene, amiloride), potassium supplements, or salt substitutes containing potassium may lead to increments in serum potassium.
