Drug Combinations With Loryna to Avoid
Combining Loryna with potassium products can increase the risk for high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly if you are using potassium products while taking Loryna.
Combining Loryna with a potassium-sparing diuretic can increase the risk for high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should check your potassium levels regularly if you are taking both of these medications.
Taking Loryna with a protease inhibitor can increase your risk for pregnancy and make the protease inhibitor less effective. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these drugs.
The hormones in Loryna may increase the level of selegiline in your blood, possibly increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your selegiline dosage or may recommend an alternate form of contraception.

St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may decrease the effectiveness of Loryna, possibly increasing the chance of pregnancy. In general, you should not take St. John's wort while using this form of contraception.
Loryna may increase the level of theophylline in your blood, possibly increasing the chance of theophylline side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower theophylline dosage or a different method of contraception.
