Advicor Drug Interactions

Telaprevir
Telaprevir can increase blood levels of Advicor, which may increase the risk for developing serious Advicor side effects, including the muscle problems known as myopathy and rhabdomyolysis. Because of this risk, these medications should not be used together.
  
Verapamil
Taking verapamil and Advicor together may increase the chance for developing 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 problems. If you take verapamil with Advicor, the lovastatin component of your Advicor dose should not exceed 20 mg a day.
 
Warfarin
Advicor can potentially interact with warfarin, possibly increasing the risk of bleeding. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more often and adjust your warfarin dosage as necessary.
