Drug Interactions With Propafenone SR

Digoxin
Taking digoxin with propafenone SR may increase your digoxin blood levels, which could increase your risk for digoxin toxicity. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your digoxin blood level if you take these medicines together, and adjust your digoxin dose if needed.
 
Haloperidol
Propafenone SR may increase the level of haloperidol in your blood, which could increase your risk for side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medicines together.
 
Imipramine
Propafenone SR may increase the amount of imipramine in your body, increasing your risk for side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before combining these medications.
 
QT-Prolonging Medications
Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you closely if you take propafenone SR with any other medication that can cause QT prolongation (a certain change in the heart rhythm), due to the risk of a life-threatening abnormal heartbeat (heart arrhythmia).
 
Orlistat
Orlistat may decrease the amount of propafenone SR absorbed into the bloodstream from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. There have been reports of people experiencing serious side effects after abruptly stopping Orlistat during propafenone SR treatment. If you take Orlistat, make sure to let your healthcare provider know. Also, do not suddenly stop taking the medication without talking to your healthcare provider.
 
Theophylline
Propafenone SR may increase blood levels of theophylline, increasing your risk for theophylline toxicity. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medicines together.
