Tasmar Drug Interactions
Tasmar Drug Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Tasmar is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Medications Metabolized by COMT
Tasmar inhibits COMT (catechol-O-methyltransferase), an enzyme that breaks down certain drugs. Tasmar could significantly increase the level of such drugs in the body, possibly increasing the risk of dangerous side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Tasmar with these medications.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Non-selective MAOIs (isocarboxazid, phenelzine, and tranylcypromine) should not be combined with Tasmar. Selective MAOI-B inhibitors (selegiline and rasagiline) can be used with Tasmar.
Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
Tasmar may interact with warfarin. Therefore, if you take warfarin, you may need additional monitoring when starting or stopping Tasmar.
