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 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 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 can make Parcopa less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
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.
