WHAT ARE THE INTERACTIONS CARDURA 2MG TAB?

Drugs that inhibit CYP3A4 enzymes

Doxazosin is broken down by the CYP3A4 enzyme. Certain drugs inhibit this enzyme and increase the amount of doxazosin.

Blood pressure medications

Combining doxazosin with any drug that lowers your blood pressure can increase your risk for lowering your blood pressure too much. Examples of drugs that lower your blood pressure are:

Combining doxazosin with drugs that increase your blood pressure can cancel the effects of both medications.

Erectile dysfunction drugs

Combining doxazosin with PDE-5 inhibitors can increase the blood pressure-lowering effects of doxazosin.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug

Taking methylphenidate with doxazosin can decrease the effect of doxazosin. This may cause your blood pressure to stay too high.

Parkinson’s disease drug

Taking levodopa with doxazosin can increase your risk of low blood pressure when standing.

Cancer drug

Taking amifostine with doxazosin increases your risk of low blood pressure.

Herbal medications

Taking doxazosin with yohimbine or herbs that can increase your blood pressure can reduce the effect of doxazosin. This may cause your blood pressure to stay too high.

Antidepressants

Taking certain antidepressants with doxazosin can increase your risk of low blood pressure when standing up from sitting or lying down.

Intermittent claudication drug

Taking pentoxifylline with doxazosin can increase your risk of low blood pressure.
