Actoplus Met Drug Interactions

Actoplus Met Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Actoplus Met is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Atazanavir
Taking Actoplus Met with atazanavir can increase the level of Actoplus Met in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your dose of Actoplus Met to prevent this interaction from occurring.
 
Atorvastatin
In studies, when Actoplus Met and atorvastatin were taken together, this decreased the levels of both Actoplus Met and atorvastatin in the blood, perhaps making them both less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of these medications if both have been prescribed.
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Combining Actoplus Met with a calcium channel blocker can make Actoplus Met less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Actoplus Met dose, especially when starting or stopping a calcium channel blocker.
 
Certain Decongestants
If Actoplus Met and certain decongestants are taken together, this can make Actoplus Met less effective, increasing your chance of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). Decongestants are in many cough and cold products, so be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before taking any cough or cold products if you are taking Actoplus Met.
 
Certain Seizure Medications
Taking Actoplus Met with certain seizure medications can decrease the level of Actoplus Met in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to increase your dose of Actoplus Met to prevent this interaction from occurring.
