Parcopa Drug Interactions

Parcopa Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Parcopa is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Antipsychotic Medications
Antipsychotic medications may decrease the effectiveness of Parcopa. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Blood Pressure Medications
Taking Parcopa and a high blood pressure medication together can increase the risk of low blood pressure (known medically as hypotension). Your healthcare provider may need to monitor your blood pressure more closely, and you may need a lower dose of your blood pressure medication.
 
Iron Products
Iron can decrease the absorption of Parcopa into the body, perhaps making it less effective. Iron products should be taken at least two hours before or after any Parcopa doses.
 
Isoniazid
Isoniazid can make Parcopa less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Metoclopramide (Reglan)
Metoclopramide can make Parcopa less effective. However, metoclopramide may also increase the absorption of Parcopa into the body (which could make it more effective or increase the risk of Parcopa side effects). It is difficult to predict what exactly may happen if these medications are combined. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Nonselective MAOIs (isocarboxazid, phenelzine, and tranylcypromine) should not be combined with Parcopa or used within two weeks of using Parcopa. Selective MAOI-B inhibitors (selegiline and rasagiline) can be used with Parcopa, although they may increase the risk of low blood pressure.
