Depression Home > Oleptro Warnings and Precautions

Who Should Not Take Oleptro?

You should not take Oleptro if you:
 
  • Are allergic to Oleptro, trazodone, or any of the inactive components used to make the medicine. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist has a list of the inactive ingredients.
  • Are taking linezolid (Zyvox®) or intravenous methylene blue. Oleptro should not be started in people taking linezolid or IV methylene blue, but a person already taking Oleptro may be given linezolid or methylene blue, if absolutely necessary, and only with very careful monitoring and only if Oleptro is stopped during treatment.
