Drug and food interactions
Applies to: procarbazine
During and within two weeks after treatment with procarbazine, you must not consume any foods or beverages that are high in tyramine content. Doing so can raise your blood pressure to dangerous levels, a condition known as hypertensive crisis. The condition is potentially fatal and may cause symptoms such as severe headache, confusion, blurred vision, problems with speech or balance, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, convulsions, and sudden numbness or weakness (especially on one side of the body). You should seek immediate medical attention if you have any of these symptoms. Foods that are high in tyramine include, but are not limited to, air dried meats; aged or fermented meats; sausage or salami; pickled herring; anchovies; liver; red wine; beer; aged cheeses, including blue, brick, brie, cheddar, parmesan, romano, and swiss; sour cream; sauerkraut; canned figs; raisins; bananas or avocados (particularly if overripe); soy beans; soy sauce; tofu; miso soup; bean curd; fava beans; or yeast extracts (such as Marmite). You should avoid the use of alcohol while being treated with procarbazine, as alcohol may increase some of the nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.
Applies to: posaconazole
Food significantly increases the absorption of posaconazole from the tablet or suspension formulations. The manufacturer recommends that you take the tablet with food and the oral suspension during or immediately (within 20 minutes) after a full meal. If you cannot eat a full meal, you should take the oral suspension with a liquid nutritional supplement like Ensure or an acidic carbonated beverage like ginger ale. Do not take these medications on an empty stomach, as it may lead to inadequate blood levels and reduced effectiveness. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions on how to use the medication properly.
