Interactions between your drugs

Major

codeine tranylcypromine

Applies to: Trifed C (codeine / pseudoephedrine / triprolidine) and tranylcypromine

Using codeine together with tranylcypromine may rarely increase the risk of serious side effects such as respiratory depression, low blood pressure, fainting, coma, and even death. In general, it is best to wait at least 14 days after stopping tranylcypromine before you start treatment with codeine. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may already be aware of the risks, but has determined that this is the best course of treatment for you and has taken appropriate precautions and is monitoring you closely for any potential complications. You should avoid the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how your medications affect you, and do not exceed the dosage or frequency of use prescribed by your doctor. 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.

Major

pseudoephedrine tranylcypromine

Applies to: Trifed C (codeine / pseudoephedrine / triprolidine) and tranylcypromine

Using tranylcypromine together with pseudoephedrine is not recommended. Combining these medications can cause dangerously high blood pressure and even death. You may use pseudoephedrine only after you have been off tranylcypromine for at least 14 days. You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience sudden and severe headache, blurred vision, confusion, seizures, chest pain, nausea or vomiting, sudden numbness or weakness (especially on one side of the body), speech difficulties, fever, sweating, lightheadedness, and/or fainting during treatment with tranylcypromine, as these may be signs and symptoms of excessively high blood pressure. 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.

Moderate

triprolidine tranylcypromine

Applies to: Trifed C (codeine / pseudoephedrine / triprolidine) and tranylcypromine

Using tranylcypromine together with triprolidine may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, blurred vision, dry mouth, constipation, heat intolerance, flushing, decreased sweating, difficulty urinating, palpitation, rapid heart beat, confusion, disorientation, and memory problems. Side effects may be more likely to occur if you are elderly. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications.

Drug and food interactions

Major

tranylcypromine food

Applies to: tranylcypromine

During and within two weeks after treatment with tranylcypromine, 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 tranylcypromine, 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.

Do not use more than the recommended dose of triprolidine, and 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.
