What should I avoid while taking Emend?

You should avoid taking pimozide with Emend (aprepitant), because it can cause serious, life-threatening complications. Emend can interact with many other medications, too. Carefully discuss with your doctor the medications you are currently taking, and do not take new medications without confirming they are safe first. Unless instructed otherwise by your doctor, you do not need to avoid any specific foods when taking Emend. Because of the potential for Emend to pass into breast milk and harm infants, you should avoid breastfeeding while taking Emend.
