D.H.E. 45 (dihydroergotamine) Disease Interactions
There is 1 disease interaction with D.H.E. 45 (dihydroergotamine):
Ergot alkaloids (applies to D.H.E. 45) vasospastic reactions
Major Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applicable conditions: Liver Disease, Shock, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Sepsis, Renal Dysfunction, Ischemic Heart Disease, Hypertension
The use of ergot alkaloids is contraindicated in patients with conditions predisposing them to vasospastic reactions, including, ischemic heart disease (angina, history of myocardial infarction, silent ischemia), peripheral vascular disease, sepsis, shock, vascular surgery, uncontrolled hypertension, and severely impaired hepatic or renal function. The vasoconstriction produced be ergot alkaloids may exacerbate these conditions. Ergot alkaloids may cause vasospastic reactions other than coronary artery vasospasm such as peripheral vascular reactions, and colonic ischemia, causing muscle pains, numbness, coldness, pallor, and cyanosis of the digits. In patients with compromised circulation, persistent vasospasm may result in gangrene or death. Nitroprusside and heparin have been used to treat ergotamine- induced severe vasoconstriction.
