Do Technivie and ribavirin interact with any other drugs?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking any of the following drugs, you should not take Technivie:

  • alfuzosin
  • carbamazepine
  • colchicine
  • a moderate or strong CYP3A4 inducer
  • efavirenz
  • an ergot derivative
  • ethinyl estradiol
  • midazolam
  • phenobarbital
  • phenytoin
  • sildenafil for pulmonary arterial hypertension
  • pimozide
  • rifampin
  • lovastatin
  • simvastatin
  • triazolam

If you are taking an antiarrhythmia drug, rilpivirine, voriconazole, salmeterol, atazanavir or lopinavir, Technivie can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor, ribavirin may not be a good option for you.

If you take Technivie, you should not take St. John's wort.
