Does Carbocaine interact with other medications or foods?

Talk with your doctor before you receive Carbocaine if you are taking cold medicine, diet pills, stimulants, or ADHD medication. You should also speak with your doctor if you are taking any of the following medications to treat psychiatric disorders: Haldol, Inaspine, Thorazine, Prolixin, Serentil, or thioridazine. Let your doctor know if you are taking Compazine, Motillium, ergotamine, dihydroergotamine, ergonovine, methylergonovine, MAO inhibitors, or antidepressants. Because these are not all the medications that may interact with Carbocaine, you should tell your doctor about all other prescription or over-the-counter medication you are taking.
