Drug Interactions With Isocarboxazid
Isocarboxazid Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when isocarboxazid is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
You should not use apraclonidine eye drops while taking isocarboxazid, due to the risk of dangerously high blood pressure (hypertension).
Atomoxetine and isocarboxazid should not be taken together, or within two weeks of each other, due to the risks of dangerous side effects.
Isocarboxazid should not be taken with barbiturates, due to the possibility of dangerous side effects.
Blood Pressure Medications
Taking isocarboxazid with high blood pressure medications can increase your risk of low blood pressure (hypotension). Isocarboxazid should not be taken with blood pressure medications.
Brimonidine (Alphagan P)
You should not use brimonidine eye drops while taking isocarboxazid, due to the risk of dangerously high blood pressure.
You should not take buspirone while taking isocarboxazid (or if you have taken isocarboxazid within the past 10 days), due to the risk of dangerously high blood pressure.
You should use caffeine sparingly while taking isocarboxazid, due to the risk of dangerously high blood pressure. Be aware that many foods and medicines (such as "stay-awake" products and migraine products) contain caffeine.
Carbamazepine (Tegretol, Tegretol XR)
Do not take carbamazepine and isocarboxazid together, due to the risk of dangerous side effects, such as high blood pressure or seizures. You will need to wait at least one week after stopping carbamazepine before starting isocarboxazid, and you will need to be started at a lower isocarboxazid dosage.
