| | Ketoconazole interactions good and bad
Ketoconazole inhibits cytochrome P450 substrates most of them to some degree to complete inhibition. If you take Percocet even in normal rx range the interaction will cause an OD within a few days!
Flomax and ketoconazole has severe effects that are bad such as double vision!
Ketoconazole inhibits benzodiazepines metabolism ( most MDs don't know about) certain benzos get affected more than others ie Xanax or Halcion are almost completely inhibited therefor increasing blood levels of unmetabolized active benzo! I'm on bromazepam and the interaction is formidable cause it raises blood levels just right. I had Valium and Xanax once on this drug. Put it this way 0.25 mg Xanax felt like 1.5mg of Xanax! I was zonked by the second day nearly unresponsive! Good thing I was in the hospital for surgery and the Hospital pharmacist and the doctor woke me up saying we're going to have to cut your Xanax dose by 1/4 there's an interaction between ketoconazole and Xanax but I hardly understood them cause I was that zonked!
If youre going to take ketoconazole research the interactions carefully !!!
