More Info on Multaq Interactions

Multaq may increase the level of dabigatran in the body, which may lead to an increased risk of bleeding. Your healthcare provider may decide to monitor you for signs and symptoms of bleeding while taking dabigatran and Multaq together.
Combining Multaq with digoxin may increase the risk of side effects (of both medications) and may increase the level of digoxin in the blood. Because of the risk of these problems, your healthcare provider should carefully evaluate whether you truly need to be on both medications. If you must take both, it is recommended that your healthcare provider reduce your digoxin dosage by half and carefully monitor your digoxin blood levels.
Grapefruit Juice
Besides medications, grapefruit juice may also interact with Multaq. It may significantly increase absorption of Multaq from the digestive tract (increasing the risk of side effects). Do not drink grapefruit juice while taking Multaq.
QT-Prolonging Medications
Multaq can cause a dangerous change in the heart rhythm known as QT prolongation. To help decrease the risk of this problem, Multaq should never be combined with other medications that have this effect. Many different types of medications may have this effect (see QT-Prolonging Medications for a list of such medications).
Multaq may increase the level of sirolimus in the blood. If you must take these medications together, your healthcare provider should monitor the level of sirolimus in your blood and adjust your sirolimus dosage as necessary.
Some Statins
Multaq may increase the level of some statin cholesterol medications in the blood, increasing the risk of statin side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Multaq with a statin.
