Peganone (ethotoin) and Alcohol / Food Interactions
There is 1 alcohol/food/lifestyle interaction with Peganone (ethotoin):
ethotoin ↔ food
Moderate Food Interaction
Ethotoin levels may decrease when the suspension is given with enteral feedings. This could lead to a loss of seizure control. You could interrupt the feeding for 2 hours before and after the ethotoin dose. Alternatively, you may give the ethotoin suspension diluted in water and flush the tube with water after administration. These would make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. However, this still may not entirely avoid the interaction and may not always be feasible. You should have your ethotoin levels checked upon starting and stopping of enteral feedings. In addition, using ethotoin together with food may alter the effects of ethotoin. Contact your doctor if you experience worsening of seizure control or symptoms of toxicity, including twitching eye movements, slurred speech, loss of balance, tremor, muscle stiffness or weakness, nausea, vomiting, feeling light-headed, fainting, and slow or shallow breathing. If your doctor does prescribe these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment or special test to safely use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Ask your doctor before making any changes to your therapy.
