Drug Interactions With Hecoria

P-Glycoprotein (Pgp) Inhibitors
P-glycoprotein is a natural protein that helps remove substances, such as medications, from the tissues in the body, so they can be excreted through the urine or feces. Pgp helps remove Hecoria from the body. Certain medications known as Pgp inhibitors decrease the activity of Pgp.
 
Taking Hecoria with one of these Pgp inhibitors causes Hecoria to be removed from the body more slowly, potentially increasing Hecoria blood levels and increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely if you take Hecoria with a Pgp inhibitor, and lower your dose if needed.
 
Pimecrolimus
It is recommended that people taking an immunosuppressant, including Hecoria, not use pimecrolimus because of the increased risk for infections, lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), and skin cancer.
 
Potassium-Sparing Diuretics
Combining potassium-sparing diuretics with Hecoria increases the risk for high blood potassium levels (hyperkalemia). In general, these medicines should not be taken together.
 
Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
PPIs may increase Hecoria blood levels, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking a PPI during Hecoria treatment.
 
Silodosin
Hecoria may increase the amount of silodosin in your blood, possibly increasing your risk for side effects. It is generally recommended that these medicines not be used together.
 
Sirolimus
People taking Hecoria after a liver or heart transplant should not take sirolimus due to the increased risk for potentially serious side effects, such as kidney problems, diabetes, and slow wound healing. Sirolimus may also not be safe for people taking Hecoria after a kidney transplant.
