Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

codeine nafcillin

Applies to: Maxifed-G CDX (codeine / guaifenesin / pseudoephedrine) and nafcillin

Nafcillin may reduce the blood levels of codeine, which may make codeine less effective in treating your condition. Additionally, if you have been receiving treatment with codeine, adding nafcillin may cause you to experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as excessive sweating, chills, flushing, restlessness, irritability, anxiety, tremor, rapid heartbeat and nausea. On the other hand, if you have been receiving both medications, suddenly discontinuing nafcillin may increase the blood levels of codeine, which could increase or prolong its adverse effects. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring 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.
