Does Telavancin interact with other medications?

Taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, while receiving telavancin may increase the risk of kidney damage. Other medications may interact with telavancin and increase the risk of developing long QT syndrome. Tell your doctor if you are taking any of the following medications before starting telavancin: amiodarone, disopyramide, dofetilide, procainamide, quinidine, sotalol, moxifloxacin, pimozide, sparfloxacin and thioridazine. Your doctor also should know if you are currently taking angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiostatin receptor blockers, blood thinners, diuretics or erythromycin.
