MONITOR: Bowel cleansing as well as overuse of certain laxatives may cause electrolyte loss and increase the risk of torsade de pointes ventricular arrhythmia in patients treated with drugs that prolong the QT interval. Electrolyte disturbances including hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia have been reported with laxative abuse and are known risk factors for torsade de pointes associated with QT interval prolongation.

MANAGEMENT: Patients treated with drugs that prolong the QT interval should exercise caution when self-medicating with laxatives. The recommended dosage and duration of use should not be exceeded. Patients treated with lactulose for more than six months should be monitored periodically for electrolyte imbalance. Patients should be advised to seek prompt medical attention if they experience symptoms that could indicate the occurrence of torsade de pointes such as dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, palpitation, irregular heart rhythm, shortness of breath, or syncope.

Drug and food interactions


ivosidenib food

Applies to: ivosidenib

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

GENERALLY AVOID: Grapefruit juice may increase the plasma concentrations of ivosidenib. The proposed mechanism is inhibition of CYP450 3A4-mediated first-pass metabolism in the gut wall by certain compounds present in grapefruit. Inhibition of hepatic CYP450 3A4 may also contribute. Pharmacokinetic data are available for the potent CYP450 3A4 inhibitor, itraconazole, and the moderate inhibitor, fluconazole. When a single 250 mg dose of ivosidenib was administered with itraconazole 200 mg once daily for 18 days, ivosidenib systemic exposure (AUC) increased to 269% of control, with no change in peak plasma concentration (Cmax). Based on physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling, coadministration of a 500 mg dose of ivosidenib with fluconazole (dosed to steady-state) is predicted to increase ivosidenib single-dose AUC to 173% of control, while multiple-dosing of both is predicted to increase ivosidenib steady-state Cmax and AUC to 152% and 190% of control, respectively. In general, the effect of grapefruit juice is concentration-, dose- and preparation-dependent, and can vary widely among brands. Certain preparations of grapefruit juice (e.g., high dose, double strength) have sometimes demonstrated potent inhibition of CYP450 3A4, while other preparations (e.g., low dose, single strength) have typically demonstrated moderate inhibition. Increased exposure to ivosidenib may increase the risk of QT interval prolongation, which has been associated with ventricular arrhythmias including torsade de pointes and sudden death.

GENERALLY AVOID: Coadministration with a high-fat meal may increase the plasma concentrations of ivosidenib. According to the product labeling, administration of a single dose with a high-fat meal (approximately 900 to 1000 calories; 500 to 600 calories in fat, 250 calories in carbohydrate, 150 calories in protein) increased ivosidenib Cmax and AUC by 98% and 25%, respectively, in healthy study subjects.

MANAGEMENT: Ivosidenib may be administered with or without food, but should not be administered with a high-fat meal. Patients should avoid consumption of grapefruit and grapefruit juice during treatment with ivosidenib.

Drug Interaction Classification

These classifications are only a guideline. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific individual is difficult to determine. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
