This list is not complete and there are many other drugs that can interact with Maxolon. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible drug interactions are listed here.
Interactions that increase your risk of side effects from other drugs
Taking Maxolon with certain medications raises your risk of side effects from these drugs. Examples of these drugs include:
- Tetracycline. Maxolon increases how much tetracycline your body absorbs. This may increase your risk of side effects of tetracycline, such as diarrhea and vomiting.
- Cyclosporine. Maxolon may increase the levels of cyclosporine in your body. This may raise your risk of kidney problems, digestion problems, and tingling (pins and needles) feeling caused by damage to your nerves.
- Insulin. Maxolon affects how food moves through your body. This may change your blood sugar levels. You may have higher blood sugar levels because food is moving through your stomach and entering your bloodstream faster. Your doctor may adjust your dose of insulin.
