Can Arthrotec interact with other medications or foods?

If your doctor prescribes the arthritis drug Arthrotec (diclofenac and misoprostol), he or she will likely advise you to take it with food, but otherwise you can eat what you usually eat.

However, be sure your doctor and pharmacist have a complete list of the medications and supplements you take regularly, because Arthrotec may interact with the following types of drugs:
  • aspirin
  • other NSAIDs
  • ACE inhibitors
  • digoxin
  • diuretics
  • diabetes drugs
  • warfarin
  • methotrexate
  • cyclosporine
  • antacids
  • lithium
  • voriconozole
  • phenobarbital
  • tacrolimus
