Drug Interactions

Along with rifampicin, this medicine is likely to lower serum levels. When taken with Ca channel blockers (such as verapamil and diltiazem), the combination can cause bradycardia and cardiac depression. The insulin-induced hypoglycaemic effect is amplified. Antidiabetic medicines' hypoglycaemic effects may be amplified. Digoxin increases the risk of bradycardia. Reserpine, MAOIs, and clonidine all increase the risk of hypotension and bradycardia. It's possible that ciclosporin levels will rise. When used with ether, cyclopropane, or trichloroethylene, the risk of hypotension and heart failure increases.

Fingolimod is another medicine that may interact with this one.
