Drug interactions between Conray-43 and Reprexain
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen) and Conray-43 (iothalamate)
Before you undergo any imaging procedure where iothalamate may be given by injection, let your doctor know if you are currently being treated with ibuprofen. Injection of iothalamate and similar contrast agents can sometimes cause kidney damage, and combining it with other medications that can also affect the kidney such as ibuprofen may increase that risk. If you have been receiving ibuprofen, your doctor may need to take special precautionary measures before, during and after the contrast injection, particularly if you also have other risk factors such as diabetes, preexisting kidney problems, dehydration, old age, congestive heart failure, low blood pressure, anemia, and multiple myeloma. Alternatively, if the risk is too great, your doctor may choose to perform a different imaging procedure where injection of a contrast is not needed. Following the procedure, you should drink plenty of fluids to keep yourself hydrated and to help flush the contrast agent out of your kidneys. Seek medical attention if you develop signs and symptoms that may suggest kidney damage such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased or decreased urination, sudden weight gain or weight loss, fluid retention, swelling, shortness of breath, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, and irregular heart rhythm. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Reprexain (hydrocodone / ibuprofen)
Do not use alcohol or medications that contain alcohol while you are receiving treatment with HYDROcodone. This may increase nervous system side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, difficulty concentrating, and impairment in thinking and judgment. In severe cases, low blood pressure, respiratory distress, fainting, coma, or even death may occur. If you are taking certain long-acting formulations of hydrocodone, consumption of alcohol may also cause rapid release of the drug, resulting in high blood levels that may be potentially lethal. Likewise, you should avoid consuming grapefruit and grapefruit juice, as this may increase the blood levels and effects of hydrocodone. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions on how to take this or other medications you are prescribed. Do not use more than the recommended dose of HYDROcodone, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medication without first talking to your doctor.
