Interactions between your drugs


HYDROcodone ivosidenib

Applies to: Simuc-HD (guaifenesin / hydrocodone / phenylephrine) and ivosidenib

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

MONITOR CLOSELY: Coadministration with inducers of CYP450 3A4 may decrease the plasma concentrations of opioids that are primarily metabolized by the isoenzyme such as butorphanol, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and oxycodone. Reduced efficacy or withdrawal symptoms may occur in patients maintained on their narcotic pain regimen following the addition of a CYP450 3A4 inducer. Conversely, discontinuation of the inducer may increase opioid plasma concentrations and potentiate the risk of overdose and fatal respiratory depression.

MANAGEMENT: Pharmacologic response to the opioid should be monitored more closely whenever a CYP450 3A4 inducer is added to or withdrawn from therapy, and the opioid dosage adjusted as necessary.

Drug and food interactions


HYDROcodone food

Applies to: Simuc-HD (guaifenesin / hydrocodone / phenylephrine)

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.

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.
