Drug Interactions ::
Levels/effects inhibited by cyproheptadine, phenytoin. Levels/effects increased by carbamazepine, cimetidine, CYP2D6 inhibitors (e.g. chlorpromazine, delavirdine, fluoxetine, miconazole, pergolide, quinidine, quinine, ritonavir, ropinirole). Increases levels/effects of atomoxetine, carvedilol, clozapine, CYP2B6 substrates (e.g. bupropion, promethazine, propofol, selegiline, sertraline), CYP2D6 substrates (e.g. amphetamines, selected beta-blockers, dextromethorphan, fluoxetine, lidocaine, mirtazapine, nefazodone, risperidone, ritonavir, thioridazine, TCAs, venlafaxine), duloxetine, galantamine, mexilitine, pimozide, procyclidine, propafenone. Decreases levels/effects of CYP2D6 prodrug substrates (e.g. codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, tramadol). Inhibits the metabolism of dextromethorphan, haloperidol, thioridazine. Enhances bradycardic effect of beta-blockers. Enhances toxic effects of other CNS depressants. Increased risk of serotonin syndrome with amphetamines, SSRIs, meperidine, nefazodone, trazodone, serotonin agonists, sibutramine, sympathomimetics, tramadol, venlafaxine. Increases risk of bleeding with NSAIDs, aspirin, warfarin, or other drugs affecting coagulation. Increases sensitivity to amphetamines. Neurotoxicity with lithium. Additive hyponatraemia with loop diuretics. Mania or hypertension with selegiline. Potentially Fatal: Fatal reactions with nonselective MAOI.
