Drug interactions between Donnatal and omeprazole
Interactions between your selected drugs
Coadministration with inhibitors of CYP450 2C19 may theoretically increase the plasma concentrations of phenobarbital, which is a substrate of the isoenzyme. Some studies have reported an approximately 20% decrease in the total clearance of phenobarbital in individuals who are poor metabolizers of CYP450 2C19, although an interaction with specific CYP450 2C19 inhibitors has not been reported. Other studies have found no significant difference in the pharmacokinetics of phenobarbital amongst subjects with various CYP450 2C19 genotypes, which would suggest a minor role of CYP450 2C19 in the overall clearance of phenobarbital. No precautions appear to be necessary during coadministration of phenobarbital with CYP450 2C19 inhibitors. However, dosage adjustments may be necessary if an interaction is suspected.

Drug Interaction Classification
The classifications below are a guideline only. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific patient is difficult to determine using this tool alone given the large number of variables that may apply.
|Major||Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.|
|Moderate||Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.|
|Minor||Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.|
