The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Artane is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Medications
Taking Artane with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications to prevent interactions from occurring.
Combining an anticholinergic medication with Artane (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of Artane side effects, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including Artane) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
