codeine dacomitinib

Applies to: codeine / dexbrompheniramine / pseudoephedrine and dacomitinib

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

MONITOR: Drugs that are inhibitors of CYP450 2D6 may interfere with the analgesic effect of codeine. The mechanism is decreased in vivo conversion of codeine to morphine, a metabolic reaction mediated by CYP450 2D6.

MANAGEMENT: The possibility of reduced or inadequate pain relief should be considered in patients receiving codeine with drugs that inhibit CYP450 2D6. An increase in the codeine dosage or a different analgesic agent may be necessary in patients requiring therapy with CYP450 2D6 inhibitors.

Drug and food interactions


dexbrompheniramine food

Applies to: codeine / dexbrompheniramine / pseudoephedrine

Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of dexbrompheniramine such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.
