Prevalite Drug Interactions
Some medications can cause a negative reaction when mixed with Prevalite. Drug interactions may cause the combination of medicines to bind in the intestines and not fully absorb into your system. Possible drug interactions may include tetracycline, ursodiol, warfarin, and penicillin G. By taking these medications at least an hour before or several hours after you take Prevalite, drug interactions can be minimized.
Prevalite® (cholestyramine) has the potential to interact with a number of other medications. Some of these Prevalite drug interactions include:
- Warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®)
- Thiazide diuretics
- Propranolol (Inderal®)
- Tetracycline (Sumycin®, Achromycin®, Wesmycin®)
- Penicillin G (Bicillin®, Pfizerpen®, Wycillin®)
- Phenobarbital (Solfoton®)
- Thyroid medicines
- Estrogens and progestins
- Digoxin (Digitek®, Lanoxin®, Lanoxicap®)
- Oral phosphate supplements
- Vitamin K products or phytonadione (Mephyton®)
- Ursodiol (Actigall®)
- Ezetimibe (Zetia®) or combination medications that contain ezetimibe (Vytorin®, Liptruzet™).
Prevalite may bind with warfarin in the intestines, preventing it from getting completely absorbed into the body. By taking warfarin at least one hour before or four to six hours after you take your Prevalite, you may be able to prevent this from happening.
Prevalite may bind with a thiazide diuretic in the intestines, preventing it from getting completely absorbed into the body. You can help prevent this by taking a thiazide diuretic at least one hour before or four to six hours after you take your Prevalite.
