Does Diurex PMS interact with other medications?

Diurex PMS is a combination of drugs, so it may interact with a variety of different medications. Because Diurex PMS may cause drowsiness, other medications that also have this affect can increase the severity of this symptom. Inform your doctor if you are taking any of the following medications:

  • anticoagulants such as warfarin; atropine; bronchodilators; cholestyramine; oral diabetes medications; 
  • gout medications such as probenecid; HIV medications such as idovudine and isoniazid; 
  • medications to treat or prevent nausea, vomiting, or motion sickness; 
  • or medicines to treat stomach ulcers, incontinence, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Diurex PMS contains acetaminophen, which has been known to increase the risk of liver damage. Your risk increases if you are also taking any of the following medications:

  • angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors such as benazepril, captopril, enalapril, 
  • fosinopril, lisinopril, quinapril, and other antibiotics such as dapsone, erythromycin,  
  • or rifampin; antifungal medications such as fluconazole, itraconazole, or ketoconazole; 
  • arthritis medications such as auranofin; birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy; 
  • cancer medications; cholesterol medications such as niacin, atorvastatin, lovastatin, 
  • simvastatin, and others; HIV/AIDS medications such as abacavir/lamivudine/zidovudine, 
  • lamivudine, nevirapine, tenofovir, or zidovudine; methotrexate; 
  • NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofena, etodolac, indomethacin, ketoprofen, and others; 
  • seizure medications such as carbamazepine, phenytoin, and others; or tuberculosis medications.

The use of alcohol during Diurex PMS treatment may increase drowsiness and increase your chance of liver damage. Do not drink alcohol during your treatment. There may be other drug interactions that have not yet been recorded. Tell your doctor if you need to start a new medication while taking Diurex PMS.
