Actiq may decrease the effectiveness of pegvisomant. If you use these medications together, your healthcare provider may need to increase your pegvisomant dose.
Using Actiq with a thiazide diuretic may increase your risk for orthostatic hypotension, which is a decrease in blood pressure upon standing. Talk to your healthcare provider if you notice symptoms of orthostatic hypotension, such as faintness, dizziness, and lightheadedness, while using these medications together.
