Posimir (bupivacaine) Disease Interactions
There are 3 disease interactions with Posimir (bupivacaine):
Bupivacaine (Includes Posimir) ↔ cardiovascular disease
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Cardiovascular Disease, Arrhythmias
Bupivacaine and other amide- containing products should be used with caution in patients with impaired cardiovascular function, as they may be less able to compensate for functional changes associated with the prolongation of AV conduction produced by these drugs. Toxic blood concentrations can depress cardiac conductivity and excitability, which can lead to atrioventricular block, ventricular arrhythmias, and cardiac arrest. In addition, myocardial contractility is depressed and peripheral vasodilation occurs, leading to decreased cardiac output and arterial blood pressure.
Bupivacaine (Includes Posimir) ↔ liver disease
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Liver Disease
Amide-type local anesthetics, such as bupivacaine, are metabolized by the liver. Bupivacaine should be used cautiously in patients with hepatic disease. Patients with severe hepatic disease, because of their inability to metabolize local anesthetics normally, are at a greater risk of developing toxic plasma concentrations.
Bupivacaine (Includes Posimir) ↔ renal impairment
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Renal Dysfunction
Bupivacaine is substantially excreted by the kidney, and the risk of toxic reactions may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Care should be taken in dose selection in patients with renal impairment.

Drug Interaction Classification
|Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.|
|Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.|
|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.|
|No interaction information available.|
