Pacerone Drug Interactions

Pacerone Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Pacerone is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Azithromycin
Combining Pacerone with azithromycin may increase the risk for potentially serious heart rhythm problems. If you must use these medicines together, your healthcare provider will need to closely monitor you.
 
Beta Blockers
Pacerone should be used cautiously in people taking a beta blocker medicine, as it may cause a dangerously low heart rate. Your healthcare provider will need to closely monitor you if you take these medicines together. This interaction is not likely to occur with beta blocker eyedrops, however.
 
Bile Acid Sequestrants
Bile acid sequestrants may bind to Pacerone in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and decrease the amount of medicine absorbed into the body. This could make Pacerone less effective. In general, these medicines should not be used together unless absolutely necessary.
 
Certain Statin Medications
Pacerone can increase the blood levels of certain statin medications. If you take a statin with Pacerone, your healthcare provider will need to give you a lower statin dose or choose one that does not interact with Pacerone.
 
Cimetidine
Cimetidine has been reported to increase Pacerone blood levels. It is probably best to avoid taking these drugs together. If you need a medication for heartburn or sour stomach, your healthcare provider can help you choose one that is not likely to interact with Pacerone.
 
Clopidogrel
Pacerone can make clopidogrel less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medicines together.
