Alfuzosin Disease Interactions

There are 3 disease interactions with alfuzosin:

Major

Alfuzosin (Includes Alfuzosin) ↔ Hepatic Impairment

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Liver Disease

Alfuzosin is contraindicated for use in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment (Child Pugh B and C). The pharmacokinetics of alfuzosin have not been studied in patients with mild hepatic impairment and caution should be exercised if it is administered to such patients.

Moderate

Alfuzosin (Includes Alfuzosin) ↔ Renal Impairment

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Renal Dysfunction

Caution should be exercised when alfuzosin is administered in patients with severe renal impairment as safety data is limited on these patients (CrCl < 30 mL/min).

Moderate

Antiadrenergic Agents (Includes Alfuzosin) ↔ Cataracts

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Cataracts

Intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrome has been observed during cataract surgery in some patients on or previously treated with antiadrenergic agents. If a patient is undergoing cataract surgery, the ophthalmologist should be prepared for possible modifications of the surgical technique (iris hooks, iris dilator rings). There does not appear to be a benefit in stopping antiadrenergic agents therapy prior to the cataracts surgery.

Drug Interaction Classification

The classifications below are a general guideline only. It is difficult to determine the relevance of a particular drug interaction to any individual given the large number of variables.
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.
Unknown No information available.
