What other drugs interact with PDE-5 inhibitors?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking alprostadil, conivaptan, fusidic acid, idelalisib, or riociguat, PDE-5 inhibitors can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking an azole antifungal drug or a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor, avanafil can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking boceprevir, pimozide, or telaprevir, sildenafil can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking a nitrate drug, you should not take a PDE-5 inhibitor.

If you are taking a QTc interval prolonging medication, vardenafil can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking tipranavir or an alpha-1 adrenergic blocking agent, tadalafil can lead to side effects and should be avoided.
