How does Naprelan interact with other medications?

Taking Naprelan with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or pain relievers, such as ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or acetaminophen, may cause an overdose. Drinking more than three alcoholic beverages a day while on Naprelan may increase your risk of gastrointestinal problems, such as stomach bleeding, ulcers, or holes in the stomach or intestines. Other drugs that may adversely interact with Naprelan include: cidofovir, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, pemetrexed, warfarin, captopril, enalapril, fosinopril, lisinopril, quinapril, cholestyramine, methotrexate and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors such as benazepril. Other medications may also interact with Naprelan. Give your doctor a list of medications that you currently take before having Naprelan prescribed for you so that he or she can evaluate possible interactions.
