Lipofen Drug Interactions

More Detail About Lipofen Drug Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Lipofen is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Bile Acid Sequestrants
Bile acid sequestrants (also known as bile acid resins) can bind to Lipofen in the digestive tract, preventing it from being absorbed. In order to avoid this interaction, be sure to take Lipofen at least one hour before or four to six hours after taking a bile acid sequestrant.
 
Colchicine
Taking Lipofen with colchicine may increase the risk of serious problems, including serious breakdown of muscle (rhabdomyolysis). In many cases, though, the benefits of taking Lipofen with colchicine will outweigh the possible risks. Discuss the risks and benefits for your particular situation with your healthcare provider.
 
Cyclosporine
Taking cyclosporine and Lipofen together may increase the risk for kidney problems. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress more closely. This combination of medications should be used only if the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
 
Statins
Taking Lipofen with a statin may increase the risk of serious problems, including serious breakdown of muscle (rhabdomyolysis) or kidney failure. In many cases, though, the benefits of taking Lipofen with a statin will outweigh the possible risks. Discuss these risks and benefits for your particular situation with your healthcare provider.
 
Warfarin
Lipofen 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.
