Zyvox Drug Interactions
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Zyvox is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Combining Zyvox with altretamine may cause low blood pressure (hypotension). If your blood pressure gets too low, you might become dizzy, lightheaded, or faint. Always check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely.
Combining Zyvox with an antidepressant may cause a dangerous and potentially life-threatening reaction called serotonin syndrome. Zyvox should not be used with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) or within two weeks of taking an MAOI. It should be used with caution with other antidepressants.
If you take Zyvox with an antidepressant, you will need to be closely monitored for signs of serotonin syndrome (see Zyvox Warnings and Precautions for more information).
Amphetamines, Amphetamine-Like Medications, and Other Stimulants
Taking Zyvox with amphetamines and other stimulants can cause dangerous side effects, such as severe hypertension (high blood pressure) or serotonin syndrome, a potentially life-threatening reaction. If you take these drugs together, your healthcare provider should monitor you more closely.
