Revatio Drug Interactions

More Detail on Revatio Drug Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potential interactions that can occur when Revatio is combined with any of the drugs mentioned above.
 
Alpha Blockers
Taking Revatio in combination with an alpha blocker may lead to low blood pressure (hypotension). If your blood pressure gets too low, you may experience symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting. Separating the doses of these medications may help reduce the risk of low blood pressure. If you use an alpha blocker with Revatio, your healthcare provider may need to monitor your blood pressure.
 
Blood Pressure Medications
Taking Revatio in combination with a high blood pressure medication may cause your blood pressure to decrease too much. Your healthcare provider may monitor your blood pressure more closely if you take Revatio with a blood pressure medicine.
 
CYP 3A4 Inducer Medications
The body breaks down Revatio using enzymes in the liver known as CYP 3A4 enzymes. Some other medications (known as CYP 3A4 inducers) can increase the activity of these enzymes. Combining Revatio with one of these CYP 3A4 inducers may decrease the level of Revatio in your body, making it less effective. If you take Revatio with a CYP 3A4 inducer, your healthcare provider may need to increase your Revatio dose.
 
CYP 3A4 Inhibitor Medications
The body breaks down Revatio using enzymes in the liver known as CYP 3A4 enzymes. Some other medications (known as CYP 3A4 inhibitors) can decrease the activity of these enzymes. Combining Revatio with one of these CYP 3A4 inhibitors may increase the level of Revatio in your body, increasing your risk for more side effects. If you take Revatio with a CYP 3A4 inhibitor, your healthcare provider may need to decrease your Revatio dose.
