Drug interactions between isoniazid / pyrazinamide / rifampin and tipranavir
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: isoniazid / pyrazinamide / rifampin and tipranavir
Talk to your doctor before using rifAMPin together with tipranavir. Combining these medications may significantly reduce the blood levels and effects of tipranavir and is generally not recommended, with few exceptions. If you have not started treatment for HIV and are in the early stages of the disease, your doctor may postpone your HIV treatment until after you are done with rifAMPin. Alternatively, he may prescribe a substitute for rifAMPin that does not interfere with your HIV medications, depending on your condition. If these medications are prescribed together, you may need an adjustment to your HIV regimen as well as close monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. 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: isoniazid / pyrazinamide / rifampin
Food decreases the levels of isoniazid in your body. Take isoniazid on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. If nausea occurs, ask your doctor if you can take isoniazid with food. Avoid alcohol while taking isoniazid. Alcohol may increase the risk of damage to the liver during isoniazid treatment. Alcohol can also cause isoniazid side effects to get worse. Contact your doctor if you experience flushing, chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Applies to: tipranavir
Tipranavir should be taken with food. This helps to reduce the gastrointestinal side effects of ritonavir, which you must also take with tipranavir in order to achieve effective blood levels of the medication against HIV. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions on how to use these medications properly.
