How does Duramorph interact with other medications and food?

Since Duramorph interacts with other medications, it is important to tell your doctor about all your medications. Mention specifically if you are taking mexiletine, trovafloxacin, fluoxetine, naltrexone, risperidone, rifampin, barbiturate anesthetics, cimetidine, ethanol, sodium oxybate, tricyclic antidepressants, phenothiazines or ketorolac. If you take any over-the-counter (OTC) medications like cough, cold, or allergy medications, as well as supplements or vitamins, there is a possibility that there can be an interaction with Duramorph. Tell your doctor about all OTC medications, herbal remedies and supplements you are taking. Alcohol consumption can cause increased drowsiness and should be avoided while taking Duramorph.
