Rectiv Drug Interactions

Rectiv Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Rectiv is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alcohol
Combining alcohol with Rectiv may increase the risk of low blood pressure (hypotension). Check with your healthcare provider before drinking alcohol while on this drug.
 
Alteplase
Based on reports of a drug interaction with intravenous (IV) nitroglycerin, it is possible that Rectiv could decrease the level of alteplase in the bloodstream, perhaps making it less effective. In the event that you need alteplase (which is sometimes used for people having a heart attack, blood clots, or certain types of strokes), make sure your healthcare provider knows you have been using Rectiv.
 
Aspirin
At high dosages, aspirin can increase the level of nitroglycerin in the bloodstream. This means that taking aspirin while using Rectiv could increase the risk for Rectiv side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Beta Blockers
Combining Rectiv with beta blockers may cause dangerously low blood pressure. Your blood pressure may need to be closely monitored if you take these medications together.
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Combining Rectiv with calcium channel blockers may cause dangerously low blood pressure. Your blood pressure may need to be closely monitored if you take these medications together.
 
Ergot Medications
Ergot medications may make Rectiv less effective for treating chest pain (angina), and Rectiv may increase the level of ergot medications in the blood, increasing the risk for ergot side effects. In general, this combination of medications should be avoided if possible.
