Kenfix interactions

LEXOTAN undergoes hepatic microsomal oxidation via the cytochrome P450 liver enzymes.

Therefore, caution should be taken in patients taking medicines that inhibit the P450 liver enzymes (e.g. azole antifungals, macrolide antibiotics, HIV protease inhibitors, calcium channel blocking agents).

LEXOTAN undergoes oxidative metabolism and, consequently, may interact with disulfiram or cimetidine resulting in increased plasma levels of LEXOTAN. Patients should be observed closely for evidence of enhanced benzodiazepine response during concomitant treatment with either disulfiram or cimetidine; some patients may require a reduction in benzodiazepine dosage.

The benzodiazepines, including LEXOTAN, produce additive CNS depressant effects when coadministered with other medications which themselves produce CNS depression e.g. barbiturates, alcohol, sedatives, antidepressants, hypnotics, anxiolytics, phenothiazines and other antipsychotics,

skeletal muscle relaxants, antihistamines, narcotic analgesics and anaesthetics.

Alcohol should be avoided in patients receiving LEXOTAN.

In the case of narcotic analgesics enhancement of euphoria may also occur, leading to an increase in psychic drug dependence.

The anticholinergic effects of atropine and similar medicines, antihistamines and antidepressants may be potentiated.

Interactions have been reported between some benzodiazepines and anticonvulsants, with changes in the serum concentration of the benzodiazepine or anticonvulsant. It is recommended that patients be observed for altered responses when benzodiazepines and anticonvulsants are prescribed together and that serum level monitoring of the anticonvulsant be performed more frequently.

Interference with Clinical, Laboratory or Other Tests:

Minor EEG changes, usually low voltage fast activity, of no known clinical significance, has been

reported with benzodiazepine administration.
