Drug interactions between Nexium and Provigil
Interactions between your selected drugs
Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.
MONITOR: Coadministration with modafinil (the racemate) or armodafinil (the R-enantiomer) may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are primarily metabolized by the CYP450 2C19 isoenzyme. The mechanism is decreased clearance due to inhibition of CYP450 2C19 activity by modafinil and armodafinil. In pharmacokinetic studies, coadministration of a single 400 mg dose of armodafinil with omeprazole 40 mg increased systemic exposure to omeprazole by approximately 40%. A case report implicated modafinil in the development of clozapine toxicity characterized by dizziness, ataxia, and tachycardia. Clozapine serum levels increased from 761 ng/mL to 1400 ng/mL several weeks after initiation of modafinil therapy.
MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if modafinil or armodafinil must be used concurrently with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 2C19, particularly those with a narrow therapeutic range. Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever modafinil or armodafinil is added to or withdrawn from therapy.

|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.|
