Drug Interactions With Fluvoxamine CR
Taking fluvoxamine CR and aspirin together can increase your risk of stomach bleeding. Talk to your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.
Carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Epitol, Equetro, Tegretol)
Fluvoxamine CR can increase the level of carbamazepine in your blood, possibly increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may decide to monitor the level of carbamazepine in your blood, especially when you are starting or stopping fluvoxamine CR.
Taking fluvoxamine CR with certain benzodiazepines can increase the level of benzodiazepine medication in your blood, possibly increasing your risk of side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Some benzodiazepines should not be taken with fluvoxamine CR, while others can be used at lower dosages.
Combining fluvoxamine CR with cisapride can increase your risk of a dangerous irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) called QT prolongation. These two medications should not be taken together.
Diltiazem (Cardizem, Cartia XT, Dilacor XR, Tiazac)
Taking diltiazem with fluvoxamine CR can increase your risk of a slow heart rate (bradycardia). Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and may need to adjust your diltiazem dosage if you are taking both of these medications.
Combining fluvoxamine CR with fentanyl may increase the risk of serotonin syndrome. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
