STD Home > Additional Medications That Interfere With Delavirdine

Cyclosporine 
Delavirdine may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood. Your healthcare provider may recommend a lower cyclosporine dosage to prevent this.
 
Dexamethasone
Dexamethasone may decrease the level of delavirdine in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Didanosine
Didanosine solution (but not didanosine capsules) can decrease the absorption of delavirdine into your body, perhaps making it less effective. Make sure to take delavirdine at least one hour before taking didanosine oral solution.
 
Ergot Medications
Delavirdine and ergot medications should not be taken together due to the risk of life-threatening reactions.
 
Ethinyl Estradiol
Delavirdine can increase the level of ethinyl estradiol in your blood, perhaps increasing the risk of side effects or potentially making birth control pills less effective.
 
Fluticasone or Combination Medications That Contain Fluticasone
Delavirdine may increase the level of fluticasone in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Methadone
Delavirdine can increase the level of methadone in your blood. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your methadone dosage to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Pimozide
Pimozide and delavirdine should not be taken together due to the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions, such as an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia).
 
Protease Inhibitors
Combining a protease inhibitor with delavirdine may increase the level of the protease inhibitor in your blood. Your healthcare provider may need to lower the dose of your protease inhibitor in some situations.
