Not established.

History of ACEI-associated or other angioedema. Concomitant aliskiren in patients with diabetes.

Fetal toxicity may develop; discontinue if pregnancy is detected. Discontinue if angioedema, laryngeal edema occurs. Severe obstructive coronary artery disease. Salt/volume depletion. Severe aortic stenosis. Surgery. Monitor for hyperkalemia. Diabetes. Renal artery stenosis. Severe CHF. Post-MI.

Interactions:

See Contraindications. Increased risk of angioedema with concomitant mTOR inhibitor (eg, temsirolimus). Potentiated by diuretics. Risk of hyperkalemia with K+ supplements, K+ sparing diuretics, or other drugs (eg, indomethacin, heparin, cyclosporine); monitor frequently. May increase lithium levels; monitor. Nitritoid reactions with concomitant injectable gold (eg, sodium aurothiomalate); rare. May be antagonized by, and renal toxicity potentiated by, NSAIDs, including selective COX-2 inhibitors (monitor renal function periodically in elderly and/or volume depleted). Dual inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system with ARBs, ACEIs, or aliskiren may increase risk of hypotension, hyperkalemia, renal function changes; monitor closely. Concomitant aliskiren in renal impairment (CrCl <60mL/min): not recommended. Potentiates simvastatin; limit simvastatin dose to 20mg daily. Monitor cyclosporine levels. May be potentiated by moderate or strong CYP3A inhibitors (eg, diltiazem, itraconazole); monitor and may need dose adjustments. Monitor BP if coadministered with CYP3A4 inducers.
