Drug Interactions between quinapril and tipranavir
This report displays the potential drug interactions for the following 2 drugs:
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: quinapril and tipranavir
Quinapril can bind to tipranavir in the gastrointestinal tract. This may inactivate tipranavir or interfere with its absorption into the bloodstream, possibly reducing its effectiveness. To avoid or minimize the interaction, you should try to take them at least 2 to 3 hours apart. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns, or if you have trouble separating the dosing times. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact. 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: quinapril
It is recommended that if you are taking quinapril you should be advised to avoid moderately high or high potassium dietary intake. This can cause high levels of potassium in your blood. Do not use salt substitutes or potassium supplements while taking quinapril, unless your doctor has told you to.
Applies to: tipranavir
Tipranavir should be taken with food. This helps to reduce the gastrointestinal side effects of ritonavir, which you must also take with tipranavir in order to achieve effective blood levels of the medication against HIV. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions on how to use these medications properly.
