Votrient Drug Interactions

Votrient Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Votrient is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
CYP 3A4 Inducer Medications
The liver breaks down Votrient using enzymes known as CYP 3A4 enzymes. Medications known as CYP 3A4 inducers can increase the activity of these enzymes. Combining Votrient with one of these drugs may decrease the level of Votrient in your bloodstream, potentially making it less effective. It is generally recommended that Votrient not be combined with the CYP 3A4 inducers listed in this article.
 
CYP 3A4 Inhibitor Medications
The liver breaks down Votrient using enzymes known as CYP 3A4 enzymes. Medications known as CYP 3A4 inhibitors can decrease the activity of these enzymes. Combining Votrient with one of these drugs may increase the level of Votrient in your bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for side effects.
 
If you take Votrient with strong CYP 3A4 inhibitors, your healthcare provider may need to reduce your Votrient dosage to 400 mg a day, or possibly even lower.
 
Denosumab
Taking denosumab with Votrient could increase your risk for potentially serious infections. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together. Also, contact your healthcare provider if you develop any symptoms of an infection, such as fever, chills, aches and pains, or coughing.
 
Echinacea
Votrient may be less effective if it is taken with echinacea. Do not take these medications together unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise.
 
Grapefruit Juice
Drinking grapefruit juice with Votrient may increase the level of Votrient in your body, possibly increasing your risk for side effects. To avoid this interaction, do not drink grapefruit juice while taking Votrient.
