Advicor Drug Interactions

Certain Antifungals
Some antifungal medications may increase the level of Advicor in your blood, increasing the risk of side effects, including dangerous side effects such as myopathy or rhabdomyolysis. These medications should not be taken with Advicor; instead, an alternative antifungal should be recommended. If no suitable alternatives are available, you should stop taking Advicor while taking the antifungal.
 
Colchicine
There have been reports of serious muscle problems, including rhabdomyolysis, occurring in people who took colchicine with Advicor. If you take these medications together, be sure to immediately report to your healthcare provider any unexplained muscle pain or weakness.
  
Cyclosporine
Taking cyclosporine and Advicor together may increase the risk for developing serious muscle problems, such as myopathy or rhabdomyolysis. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress more closely and make necessary dosing adjustments. These medications should generally not be used together.
 
Danazol
Taking both danazol and Advicor together may increase the risk for developing serious muscle problems, such as myopathy or rhabdomyolysis. These medications should only be used together if the benefits of using them outweigh the potential risks of muscle problems. If you take these medications together, the lovastatin component of your Advicor dose should not exceed 20 mg a day.
 
Diltiazem
Taking diltiazem with Advicor may increase the risk for serious muscle problems, such as myopathy or rhabdomyolysis. The medications should only be used together if the benefits of their use outweigh the potential risks of muscle side effects. If you take these medications together, the lovastatin component of your Advicor dose should not exceed 20 mg a day.
  
Fibrates
Combining a fibrate with Advicor increases the risk of serious muscle problems. Advicor should not be used in combination with gemfibrozil. The combination of Advicor and other fibrates should generally be avoided unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks of the drug interaction.
