Advicor Drug Interactions

Drug interactions may occur if Advicor is combined with protease inhibitors, blood pressure medicines, cyclosporine, and antifungals. These medicines can cause your body to metabolize the drugs differently than intended and lead to decreased effectiveness. The risks of developing serious muscle problems may also increase dramatically. If drug interactions with Advicor are a concern, your doctor may either monitor you more closely or make dosing adjustments.
