Drug interactions between escitalopram and fostamatinib
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: escitalopram and fostamatinib
Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.
MONITOR: Coadministration with fostamatinib may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme and/or P-glycoprotein (P-gp) transporter. The proposed mechanism is decreased clearance in the intestine and/or liver due to inhibition of CYP450 3A4-mediated metabolism and P-gp-mediated efflux by fostamatinib. According to the product labeling, administration of a single 40 mg dose of the CYP450 3A4 substrate simvastatin with fostamatinib 100 mg twice daily increased simvastatin peak plasma concentration (Cmax) and systemic exposure (AUC) by 113% and 64%, respectively. In addition, simvastatin acid Cmax increased by 83% and AUC increased by 64%. When the P-gp substrate digoxin (0.25 mg once daily) was administered with fostamatinib (100 mg twice daily), digoxin Cmax and AUC increased by 70% and 37%, respectively.
MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised when fostamatinib is used concurrently with drugs that are known substrates of CYP450 3A4 and/or P-gp, particularly those with a narrow therapeutic range. Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever fostamatinib is added to or withdrawn from therapy.
