Ditropan Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Ditropan is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Taking Ditropan with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications.
Taking an anticholinergic medication with Ditropan (which is also an anticholinergic drug) can increase your risk of Ditropan side effects, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
Certain Antifungals or Antibiotics
Some antibiotic or antifungal medications may increase the level of Ditropan in your blood. Your healthcare provider may recommend that you take a lower Ditropan dosage if you are taking certain antibiotics or antifungals.
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including Ditropan) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Therefore, taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Protease inhibitors may increase the level of Ditropan in your blood. Your healthcare provider may recommend that you take a lower Ditropan dosage if you are taking a protease inhibitor.
