Do proton pump inhibitors interact with other medications?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking any of these medications, proton pump inhibitors can lead to side effects and should be avoided:

  • cefditoren
  • dabrafenib
  • delavirdine
  • nelfinavir
  • pimozide
  • posaconazole
  • rifampin
  • rilpivirine
  • risedronate
  • a tyrosine kinase inhibitor

If you are taking bosentan, omeprazole can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking escitalopram, omeprazole may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking clopidogrel, esomeprazole can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you take a proton pump inhibitor, you should avoid St. John's wort.
