Blood Pressure Home > Tribenzor Drug Interactions

Colesevelam
Colesevelam may decrease the absorption of Tribenzor into the body, perhaps making it less effective. This interaction can be avoided by taking Tribenzor at least four hours before colesevelam.
 
Corticosteroids
Taking corticosteroids with Tribenzor may cause an electrolyte imbalance, especially with the levels of potassium in the blood. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider may monitor your blood potassium levels more closely.
 
Diabetes Medications
Taking Tribenzor with diabetes medications may increase blood sugar levels. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and may need to adjust the dose of your diabetes medication.
 
Lithium
Tribenzor may increase the amount of lithium in your body to unsafe levels. Signs of too much lithium (lithium toxicity) include the following:
 
  • Tremors in the hands or legs
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty walking
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion.
     
If you take Tribenzor and lithium together, your healthcare provider should monitor your blood lithium levels. You may need a lower lithium dose. If you experience any of the signs of lithium toxicity, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
 
Narcotic Pain Relievers
When taking Tribenzor with a narcotic pain reliever, your blood pressure may decrease too much. If you take Tribenzor with a narcotic pain reliever, watch for symptoms of low blood pressure, such as dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting. If you experience these symptoms, contact your healthcare provider. He or she may need to monitor your blood pressure more closely or lower your Tribenzor dose.
