Drug Interactions With Armodafinil
Propranolol (Inderal, Inderal LA)
Taking propranolol with armodafinil can increase the level of propranolol in your blood, possibly increasing the chance of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these two medications together.
Rifamycin antibiotics may decrease the level of armodafinil in your blood, perhaps making it less effective. Contact your healthcare provider if you notice that armodafinil seems to be less effective since starting a rifamycin antibiotic.
Check with your healthcare provider before taking armodafinil with any seizure medications. Some seizure medications may decrease the level of armodafinil in your blood, and armodafinil may increase the level of some seizure medications in your blood.
Some Protease Inhibitors
Some protease inhibitors may increase the level of armodafinil in your blood, increasing your risk of armodafinil side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking armodafinil with a protease inhibitor.
Combining a tricyclic antidepressant with armodafinil may increase the level of the antidepressant in your blood, possibly increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to lower the dose of your tricyclic antidepressant to prevent this interaction from occurring.
Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
Armodafinil may interact with warfarin. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your warfarin dosage as necessary, especially when you start or stop taking armodafinil.
