Drugs That Interfere With Solodyn

More Information on Solodyn Drug Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Solodyn is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aluminum, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, or Zinc Products
Taking Solodyn with products that contain aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, or zinc, including antacids and supplements, may decrease the amount of Solodyn absorbed into the body, possibly decreasing its effectiveness. To help minimize this potential interaction, take Solodyn at least two hours before or six hours after these products.
 
Aspirin
Taking Solodyn with aspirin may decrease the amount of Solodyn absorbed into the body, decreasing its effectiveness. This interaction is mostly a concern with buffered aspirin products. Take Solodyn two hours before or six hours after taking buffered aspirin to avoid this interaction.
 
Atazanavir
Solodyn may decrease the levels of atazanavir in your body, potentially decreasing its effectiveness. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these drugs together.
 
Bile Acid Sequestrants
Bile acid sequestrants may bind to Solodyn in the digestive tract, decreasing the amount absorbed into the body. To help minimize this interaction, separate your Solodyn and bile acid sequestrant doses by at least two hours.
 
Birth Control Pills
Solodyn may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills, which could increase your risk for breakthrough bleeding or unintentional pregnancy. The manufacturer recommends that women use a second form of birth control during Solodyn treatment. There is considerable controversy over whether or not antibiotics actually interact with birth control pills (see Antibiotics and Birth Control Pills).
