Drug Combinations With Caziant to Avoid

Caziant Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Caziant is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglutethimide (Cytadren)
Taking Caziant and aminoglutethimide together increases the risk of pregnancy. Do not combine these medications without checking with your healthcare provider first. You may need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms.
 
Antibiotics
There have been reports of accidental pregnancy occurring in women taking birth control pills with certain antibiotics. It is still uncertain how significant the interaction between birth control pills and antibiotics may be. Some antibiotics are more likely to cause problems than others. Ask your healthcare provider if you need a backup method of contraception any time you take an antibiotic.
 
Aprepitant (Emend)
Aprepitant may make Caziant less effective, perhaps increasing your chance of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need to use a backup method of contraception. Aprepitant is commonly used by people undergoing chemotherapy, and it is usually important for women having chemotherapy to avoid pregnancy.
 
Atorvastatin (Lipitor)
Atorvastatin may increase the level of Caziant in your blood, which may increase your risk of Caziant side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Barbiturate Medications
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Caziant too quickly, increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
