Kazano Drug Interactions

Kazano Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Kazano is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Because calcium channel blockers can increase blood glucose (sugar) levels, taking them with Kazano could make Kazano less effective. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dosage if you start or stop taking a calcium channel blocker. 
 
Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors
Taking Kazano with certain medications known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors could increase your risk for a potentially serious problem known as lactic acidosis (a buildup of acid in the blood). These medications can be used together, but should be done so with caution.
 
Certain Decongestants
Because certain decongestants can cause high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia), taking them with Kazano could make Kazano less effective. Decongestants are in many cough and cold products, so talk to your healthcare provider before taking any cough or cold medication.
 
Cimetidine and Ranitidine
Taking Kazano with cimetidine or ranitidine could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these drugs together.
 
Corticosteroids
Corticosteroids have the potential to cause high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia). Taking them with Kazano could make Kazano less effective. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dosage if you start or stop taking a corticosteroid. 
 
Digoxin
Taking Kazano with digoxin could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely in this case, especially if you start or stop taking digoxin.
 
Diuretics
Because diuretics may increase blood glucose (sugar) levels, taking them with Kazano could make Kazano less effective. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dose if you start or stop taking a diuretic medication.
 
Estrogens
Taking Kazano with estrogens could make Kazano less effective, potentially 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 Kazano dose, especially when starting or stopping an estrogen.
 
Insulin
Because both insulin and Kazano can lower blood sugar, taking these medicines together may increase your risk for dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia). This doesn't mean these drugs cannot be used together. However, your healthcare provider may need to lower your insulin dose if you take Kazano.
 
Insulin Secretogogues
Because insulin secretogogues and Kazano can both lower blood sugar levels, taking these drugs together may increase your risk for dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia). This doesn't mean these medicines cannot be used together. However, your healthcare provider may need to lower your insulin secretogogue dose if you take it with Kazano.
 
Isoniazid
Because isoniazid may cause high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia), taking it with Kazano could make Kazano less effective. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dose if you start or stop taking isoniazid.  
 
Morphine
Taking Kazano with morphine could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely in this case if you start or stop taking morphine. 
 
Niacin
Taking Kazano with niacin can make Kazano 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 Kazano dose, especially when starting or stopping niacin.
 
Oral Contraceptives
Taking Kazano with oral contraceptives (birth control pills) could make Kazano less effective, potentially increasing your risk of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dose, especially when starting or stopping an oral contraceptive.
 
Phenothiazines
Phenothiazine medications may cause high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and could, therefore, make Kazano less effective. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dose, especially if you start or stop taking a phenothiazine.  
 
Phenytoin
Phenytoin may cause high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and could, therefore, make Kazano less effective. You may need to be monitored more closely, and your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dose, especially if you start or stop taking phenytoin.  
 
Procainamide
Taking Kazano with procainamide could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely in this case, especially if you start or stop taking procainamide.
 
Quinidine
Quinidine could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely in this case, especially if you start or stop taking quinidine during Kazano treatment.
 
Quinine
Quinine may increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely, especially if you start or stop taking quinine.
 
Somatropin
Taking somatropin with Kazano can make Kazano less effective, increasing your risk for high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your Kazano dose, especially if you start or stop using somatropin. 
 
Thyroid Medications
Taking Kazano with thyroid medications can make Kazano 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 Kazano dose, especially when starting or stopping a thyroid medication.
 
Trimethoprim
Taking trimethoprim with Kazano could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely in this case, especially when starting or stopping trimethoprim.
 
Vancomycin
Taking vancomycin with Kazano could increase the level of Kazano in your blood, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely in this case, especially when starting or stopping vancomycin.
