How does paromomycin sulfate interact with other medications or food?

There are no known interactions with food when taking paromomycin sulfate. Taking this prescription drug with digoxin may reduce the absorption rate of the digoxin, which may be offset by a reduced digoxin metabolism. It also affects the absorption of methotrexate. Paromomycin sulfate is also known to increase the action of both depolarizing and nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents. Talk to your doctor about all prescription or over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements that you are taking, before starting on this drug.
