Does carnitine interact with other medications?

Carnitine should not interact with other medications. It may be used together with other medications for treatment. For example, fish oil and coenzyme Q10 can be used with acetyl-L-carnitine to treat macular degeneration, a condition affecting eyesight. Carnitine can help curb side effects of other drugs, such as AZT, doxorubicin, isotretinoin and valproic acid.
