Indomethacin (Indocin) can reduce the diuretic and blood pressure-lowering effects of other loop diuretics (for example furosemide) and it probably can do the same with bumetanide. Other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, for example, ibuprofen (Motrin), naproxen (Naprosyn) may interact similarly.
PREGNANCY: There have been no adequate studies on the effects of bumetanide on the fetus. Thus, the physician must carefully weigh the potential but unknown risks and benefits of bumetanide before prescribing it for pregnant women.
NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known if bumetanide is excreted into breast milk. Thus, it should be used in women who are breastfeeding only if its potential benefits outweigh the unknown risks.
