Procardia Drug Interactions

Procardia Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Procardia is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Certain Antibiotics and Antifungals
Taking Procardia with certain antibiotics or antifungals can increase the level of Procardia in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider should monitor your blood pressure (and may need to lower your Procardia dosage) while you are taking certain antibiotics or antifungals.
 
Beta Blockers
Combining Procardia with a beta blocker may increase your risk of side effects, especially low blood pressure (hypotension) and congestive heart failure (CHF). Your healthcare provider should closely monitor you if you are taking a beta blocker with Procardia.
 
Cimetidine (Tagamet)
Cimetidine may increase the level of Procardia in your blood, increasing your risk of Procardia side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Procardia dose or may suggest an alternative to cimetidine.
 
Digoxin (Digitek, Lanoxin)
Procardia may increase the level of digoxin in your blood. Because changes in digoxin levels can be dangerous, your healthcare provider should monitor the level of digoxin in your blood and adjust your digoxin dosage as necessary.
 
Grapefruit Juice
Grapefruit juice can increase the level of Procardia in your blood, even if you do not take Procardia and drink grapefruit juice at the same time of the day. It is best to avoid grapefruit juice altogether while you are taking Procardia. However, if your healthcare provider decides it is okay for you to drink grapefruit juice, you should do so consistently and in moderation.
