Interactions between your drugs


tipranavir stiripentol

Applies to: tipranavir and stiripentol

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

MONITOR: The concomitant administration of stiripentol may significantly increase plasma concentrations, pharmacologic effects, and toxicities of drugs that are substrates of CYP450 2C19, 3A4, and/or 2D6. The mechanism is inhibition of cytochrome P-450 metabolism by stiripentol.

MANAGEMENT: Clinical and laboratory monitoring for altered efficacy and safety is recommended during concomitant use. Dosage adjustments may be required if increased plasma levels or effects are observed.

stiripentol food

Applies to: stiripentol

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

GENERALLY AVOID: Taking stiripentol on an empty stomach may reduce its oral bioavailability. Stiripentol degrades rapidly when exposed to gastric acid in an empty stomach.

GENERALLY AVOID: Alcohol may potentiate the depressant effects of stiripentol on the central nervous system. Concomitant use may result in increased sedation and dizziness as well as impairment of psychomotor skills.

GENERALLY AVOID: It is not known whether stiripentol may reduce theophylline and caffeine metabolism, as data on the potential for inhibition of CYP450 1A2 are limited. Consumption of foods and nutritional products such as cola drinks (which contain significant quantities of caffeine) and chocolate (which contains caffeine and trace amounts of theophylline) may be unsafe during treatment with stiripentol, particularly in children.

MANAGEMENT: Stiripentol should be taken during a meal for optimal absorption; however, it should not be taken with milk, dairy products (e.g., yogurt, soft cream cheese), fruit juice, or carbonated beverages. Patients should be advised to avoid or limit consumption of alcohol and to avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until they know how the medication affects them. Food and beverages that may contain caffeine or theophylline such as colas, chocolate, coffee, tea, or energy drinks should also be avoided during treatment with stiripentol.
