How does Zyvox interact with other medications or foods?

If you are taking Zyvox, you should not eat foods or alcoholic beverages containing tyramine. High amounts of tyramine can be found in pickled or smoked meats, soy sauce, draught beer, red wine, and aged cheeses. These foods may raise your blood pressure to harmful levels.

 

You should also not take Zyvox if you have taken a MAO inhibitor in the last 14 days. Life-threatening symptoms may occur. Other medications that should be avoided include antidepressants such as amitriptyline, citalopram, doxepin, escitalopram, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, imipramine, paroxetine, or sertraline. You can develop symptoms such as poor coordination, memory loss, muscle spasms, fever, chills, anxiety, sweating, poor concentration, and chills if you take Zyvox together with these types of antidepressants. Your doctor may need to alter your dosage of these medications or closely watch for side effects.
