Description Older patients prescribed trimethoprim (TMP) with reninangiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) blocking agents may be at an increased risk of cardiac sudden death due to drug-induced hyperkalemia. Medication errors and clinical pharmacist observations at the University of Utah Health (UUH) reveal gaps in knowledge of the drug interaction between TMP and RAAS blocking agents. There are currently no published studies investigating the effects of a pharmacist-driven intervention on TMP prescribing patterns in the setting of concomitant RAAS blocking therapy.
