Fentora Drug Interactions

Fentora Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when Fentora is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alcohol
Consuming alcohol while taking Fentora could potentially increase your risk for serious side effects, including extreme drowsiness, confusion, or breathing problems. You should not drink alcohol while using this medication.
 
Alvimopan
Fentora may increase the risk of serious alvimopan side effects. Do not take alvimopan if you have taken Fentora in the past seven days.
 
Amphetamines
Combining amphetamines with Fentora may increase the pain-relieving effects of Fentora. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your response to Fentora if you take these medications together, and possibly decrease your Fentora dose.
 
Beta Blockers
Taking Fentora with a beta blocker may cause a decrease in your heart rate and blood pressure, potentially to unsafe levels. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider may need to closely monitor your blood pressure and heart rate.
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Taking Fentora with certain calcium channel blockers may cause your heart rate and blood pressure to decrease, potentially to unsafe levels. Your healthcare provider may need to closely monitor your blood pressure and heart rate if you take these medications together.
 
CYP 3A4 Inducer Medications
The body breaks down Fentora using enzymes in the liver known as CYP 3A4 enzymes. Some other medications (known as CYP 3A4 inducers) can increase the activity of these enzymes. Combining Fentora with one of these CYP 3A4 inducers may decrease the level of Fentora in your body, making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely to make sure your pain is adequately controlled if you take Fentora with a CYP 3A4 inducer.
