Pexeva Drug Interactions

Phenothiazines
Pexeva can increase the level of phenothiazine medications in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects, such as significant drowsiness or movement problems. It is recommended that Pexeva not be taken with thioridazine in particular, as this combination may lead to a dangerous irregular heart rhythm called QT prolongation. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Pexeva with any phenothiazine medication.
 
Pimozide
Pimozide and Pexeva should not be taken together, as the combination may cause a dangerous irregular heart rhythm called QT prolongation.
 
Risperidone

SSRI or SNRI Antidepressants
Taking Pexeva with other SSRI or SNRI antidepressants can increase your risk for a serious and potentially dangerous reaction called serotonin syndrome. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these depression medications together. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of serotonin syndrome, such as confusion, a rapid heartbeat, muscle rigidity, or diarrhea.
 
St. John's Wort
Taking Pexeva with St. John's Wort can increase your risk for a serious and potentially dangerous reaction called serotonin syndrome. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of serotonin syndrome.

Tamoxifen must be activated in the liver before it can work in the body. Pexeva can reduce this activation, perhaps making tamoxifen less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these drugs together.
