637 Possible Causes for Hyperkalemia, Lithium

  • Fosinopril

    […] these agents in their impact on serum lithium levels.[] We conducted a study in known chronic hemodialysis patients who developed interdialytic hyperkalemia in spite of other treatments to control hyperkalemia.[] Monitor for hyperkalemia in diabetics. Discontinue if angioedema, laryngeal edema, jaundice, or markedly elevated liver enzymes occurs. Surgery.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    […] young-boy, diagnosed with autism, developed diabetes mellitus type 1 whilst he was on treatment with olanzapine (started 4 months before), clomipramine, valproic acid and lithium[] It presents with asymptomatic hyperkalemia along with hyperchloraemic metabolic acidosis without significant renal function impairment.[] These drugs include haloperidol, lithium carbonate, phenothiazines, tricyclic antidepressants, and adrenergic agonists.[]

  • Aldosterone Antagonist

    In the lithium-treated group, there was a significant positive correlation between both PRA and plasma aldo vs serum lithium.[] In adjusted analyses, patients prescribed aldosterone antagonists had a 2-fold increased risk of hyperkalemia at 30 days.[] There was a significant increase in the risk of readmission with hyperkalemia, predominantly within 30 days after discharge.[]

  • Heat Stroke

    […] blood pressure) antihistamines (used in allergies) tricyclic antidepressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) (both used in depressive disorders) aspirin lithium[] Laboratory studies with dogs have demonstrated heat stroke-induced sinoatrial node dysfunction in the setting of hyperkalemia.[] The associated hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis may lead to an acute renal, cardiac, and hemostatic failure.[]

  • Triamterene

    The possible presence of lithium transport beyond the proximal tubule was examined by measuring lithium excretion after administration of triamterene, a potassium-sparing[] Pediatric patients • Use cautiously; children are more susceptible to hyperkalemia.[] A combination of triamterene with thiazide has not been shown previously to precipitate lithium toxicity.[]

  • Amipramizide

    509 Chapter 13 Ranitidine 533 Chapter 14 Strychnine 563 Chapter 15 Vidarabine 647 Chapter 16 Zomepirac Sodium 673 PROFILE SUPPLEMENTS 699 Cumulative Index 793 Chapter 9 Lithium[] Treatment of hyperkalemia: If hyperkalemia occurs in patients taking MIDAMOR, the drug should be discontinued immediately.[] This would include any medication for high blood pressure , potassium supplements, or diabetes , lithium (especially dangerous to be taking while on Amipramizide), medications[]

  • Captopril

    He was unsuccessfully treated with both demeclocycline and lithium carbonate.[] Dual inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system with ARBs, ACEIs, or aliskiren may increase risk of hypotension, hyperkalemia, renal function changes; monitor closely.[] There have been reports of increased lithium (Eskalith, Lithobid ) levels when lithium is used in combination with ACE inhibitors.[]

  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Furthermore, a placebo-controlled double-blind trial of lithium carbonate in this patient found lithium ineffective in preventing the attacks of paralysis, in contrast to[] During a severe attack, the drug rapidly corrected hyperkalemia and seemed to enhance the return of strength.[] This syndrome consists of hypertension, tubular acidosis, and hyperkalemia with normal glomerular filtration rate. The pathophysiological mechanism is still unknown.[]

  • Lisinopril

    Aggressive serum lithium concentration monitoring and a reduction in the dose of lithium is advised when using ACE inhibitors because of disturbances and shifts in fluid and[] The patient was judged to have high-anion-gap metabolic acidosis, acute kidney injury, severe hyperkalemia, and rhabdomyolysis.[] […] are the risk factors for hyperkalemia.[]

  • Status Epilepticus

    SE is most often investigated using the lithium-pilocarpine rat model in which pilocarpine is used to initiate the seizures.[] Caution is required, however, because ongoing status epilepticus may cause hyperkalemia after 20-30 minutes.[] […] encephalitis Complex migraine Posttraumatic amnesia Hypoglycaemia Prolonged postictal state Psychogenic pseudocoma Psychogenic non-epileptic status Substance intoxication (lithium[]
