Drug Interactions With Pravastatin
Medications that may cause drug interactions with pravastatin include fibrates, erythromycin, niacin, and many others. These drug interactions may result in side effects or complications such as increased levels of medicine in the blood and an increased risk of developing serious muscle problems.
There are a number of medications that can potentially interact with Pravastatin tablets("pravastatin"). Some possible pravastatin interactions can include:
- Certain antifungals, such as:
- Niacin (nicotinic acid, Niacor®, Nicolar®).
Some of these drug interactions may increase your risk for developing serious muscle problems (see Pravachol and Muscle Pain). If you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness while taking pravastatin (especially if you also have a fever or feel ill), it is important to contact your healthcare provider immediately.
