Antivert Drug Interactions
Antivert Drug Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Antivert is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
You should avoid alcohol while taking Antivert, as undesirable side effects (such as excessive drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion) may result.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Medications
Taking Antivert with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications to prevent interactions from occurring. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
Other Medications That Cause Drowsiness
Check with your healthcare provider before combining Antivert with any other medication that also causes drowsiness, as undesirable side effects (such as excessive drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion) may result.
Other Anticholinergic Medications
Combining an anticholinergic medication with Antivert (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of Antivert side effects, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
It is possible that Antivert may increase the risk of a dangerous irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) due to a phenothiazine medication. Additionally, combining Antivert with a phenothiazine increases the risk of excessive drowsiness.
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including Antivert) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
