In one study, the addition of hydrochlorothiazide to eplerenone therapy has been shown to offset increases in serum potassium. Hyperkalaemia see sections 4. Renal Insufficiency The pharmacokinetics of eplerenone were evaluated in patients with varying degrees of renal insufficiency and in patients undergoing haemodialysis. Serum potassium should be assessed as needed periodically thereafter.

Warfarin No clinically significant pharmacokinetic interactions have been observed with warfarin. NYHA functional classification improved or remained stable for a statistically significant greater proportion of subjects receiving eplerenone compared to placebo.

Erratum in N Engl J Med. A close monitoring of serum potassium and renal function is recommended, especially in patients at risk for impaired renal function, e. Forrest plot on the primary composite endpoint with eplerenone vs. Both peak plasma levels C max and area under the curve AUC are dose proportional for doses of 10 mg to mg and less than proportional at doses ephesuus mg.

Clinical monitoring for postural hypotension is recommended during alphablocker co-administration. It is unknown if eplerenone is excreted in human breast milk after oral administration.

Tricyclic anti-depressants, neuroleptics, amifostine, baclofen Co-administration of these drugs with eplerenone may potentially increase antihypertensive effects and risk of postural hypotension.

We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the effect of eplerenone, a selective aldosterone blocker, on morbidity and mortality among patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure.


Eplerenone was started at a dose of 25 mg once daily and was to be increased to 50 mg once daily starting on day 2 if serum potassium concentration was below 5. Patients were randomly assigned to eplerenone 25 ephesu per day initially, titrated to a maximum of 50 mg per day; patients or placebo patients [correction] in addition to optimal medical therapy.

If needed, close monitoring of serum potassium and renal function are recommended when cyclosporine and tacrolimus are to be administered during treatment with eplerenone see section 4. The tablets contain lactose and should not be administered in patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption.
