Can I Take My Medicines With Aptivus?
St. John's Wort
Because St. John's wort can greatly reduce the level of Aptivus in your blood, these two substances should never be taken together.
Combining high doses of vitamin E with Aptivus can increase the risk of bleeding. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these substances. Also, people who take Aptivus oral solution (liquid) should not take vitamin E except in the form of a standard multivitamin. The oral solution contains vitamin E, and taking any additional vitamin E (except the small dose in a multivitamin) could cause problems.
Aptivus can decrease the level of zidovudine in your blood, possibly making it less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to increase your zidovudine dosage to prevent this interaction from occurring.
