Products That Interfere With Lanoxin

Lanoxin Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Lanoxin is combined with any of the drugs mentioned above.
 
5-aminosalicylic Acid (5-ASA) Derivatives
5-ASA derivative medications may decrease the absorption of Lanoxin into the body, decreasing blood levels. This could make Lanoxin less effective. Your healthcare provider may want to monitor your Lanoxin levels with a simple blood test, especially when you start or stop taking a 5-ASA derivative medication.
 
Acarbose
Acarbose may decrease Lanoxin blood levels, which could make it less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Your healthcare provider may want to monitor your Lanoxin levels with a simple blood test, especially when you start or stop taking acarbose.
 
Amiodarone
Amiodarone may increase the levels of Lanoxin in the body, increasing your risk for serious side effects. Your healthcare provider may decrease your Lanoxin dosage when you start amiodarone and monitor your Lanoxin levels with a blood test. Children may have a greater risk for this interaction.
 
Antacids
Antacids may decrease the absorption of Lanoxin into the body, potentially decreasing Lanoxin blood levels. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking antacids with Lanoxin.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking beta blockers with Lanoxin increases your risk for a very low heart rate (bradycardia). This interaction is less of a concern with beta blocker eye drops. In addition, carvedilol (Coreg) may increase Lanoxin levels in the body, increasing your risk for serious side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking a beta blocker with Lanoxin.
