Drug interactions between Miradon and vandetanib
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Miradon (anisindione) and vandetanib
Cancer drugs such as vandetanib may alter the effects of anisindione. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. Contact your doctor if you experience any unusual bleeding or bruising. Also seek immediate medical attention if you have potential signs and symptoms of blood clots such as chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, coughing up blood, sudden loss of vision, and/or pain, redness or swelling in an arm or leg. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns. 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: Miradon (anisindione)
Nutrition and diet can affect your treatment with anisindione. Therefore, it is important to keep your vitamin supplement and food intake steady throughout treatment. For example, increasing vitamin K levels in the body can promote clotting and reduce the effectiveness of anisindione. While there is no need to avoid products that contain vitamin K, you should maintain a consistent level of consumption of these products. Foods rich in vitamin K include beef liver, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, endive, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, parsley, soy beans, spinach, Swiss chard, turnip greens, watercress, and other green leafy vegetables. Moderate to high levels of vitamin K are also found in other foods such as asparagus, avocados, dill pickles, green peas, green tea, canola oil, margarine, mayonnaise, olive oil, and soybean oil. However, even foods that do not contain much vitamin K may occasionally affect the action of anisindione. There have been reports of patients who experienced bleeding complications and increased INR or bleeding times after consuming large quantities of cranberry juice, mangos, grapefruit, grapefruit juice, grapefruit seed extract, or pomegranate juice. Again, you do not need to avoid these foods completely, but it may be preferable to limit their consumption, or at least maintain the same level of use while you are receiving anisindione. Talk to a healthcare provider if you are uncertain about what foods or medications you take that may interact with anisindione. It is important to tell your doctor about all medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
When anisindione is given with enteral (tube) feedings, you may interrupt the feeding for one hour before and one hour after the anisindione dose to minimize potential for interaction. Feeding formulas containing soy protein should be avoided.
