CLARITHROMYCIN in Prevpac
may interact with LANSOPRAZOLE in Prevpac
Clarithromycin may block the breakdown of lansoprazole by the liver. If this happens, blood levels of lansoprazole could be increased. Based on information from one study involving a small number of healthy people who took these drugs together, this potential interaction does not appear to cause any harmful effects. In fact, clarithromycin and lansoprazole are sometimes used together to treat ulcers that are caused by a particular type of bacteria. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.
This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity.
FLUOXETINE in Fluoxetine tablets or capsules
may interact with CLARITHROMYCIN in Prevpac
Clarithromycin may block the breakdown of fluoxetine by the liver. If this happens, blood levels of fluoxetine could be increased and this could increase the risk of side effects including nausea, dizziness, headaches, and sleep disturbances. Other more serious side effects may occur due to fluoxetine's effect on serotonin, a chemical that is found in the brain. Initially, excess levels of serotonin in the brain may cause increased confusion and restlessness. Other possible symptoms may include weakness, fever, nausea, and anxiety. In rare cases, high levels of serotonin in the brain may cause severe complications like seizures, stroke, and even death. If these drugs are used together, your doctor may want to monitor you closely when therapy with clarithromycin is started or stopped, or when the dose of clarithromycin is changed. If you are experiencing problems, it may be necessary to adjust the dose of fluoxetine. You may want to ask your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you think you are having problems.
This interaction is poorly documented and is considered major in severity.
