What other medications interact with urinary anticholinergics?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking an anticholinergic bronchodilator, conivaptan, eluxadoline, fusidic acid, idelalisib, or potassium chloride in solid form, urinary anticholinergics can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking dabrafenib, solifenacin can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking metoprolol, darifenacin may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking mirabegron, topiramate, or an opioid, a urinary anticholinergic may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking a QTc interval prolonging drug, urinary anticholinergics can lead to serious side effects.

If you are taking thioridazine, darifenacin can lead to side effects and should be avoided.
