Medicines That Interfere With Floxin

Corticosteroids
Taking Floxin with corticosteroids may increase the risk of tendon problems, including tendon rupture. Older adults appear to be at an even higher risk for this reaction. If you take Floxin with a corticosteroid, be sure to watch for any signs of tendon problems, such as tendon or joint pain or tenderness. Report any such problems immediately to your healthcare provider.
 
Cyclobenzaprine
Floxin may increase the amount of cyclobenzaprine in the bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. If you currently take cyclobenzaprine, talk to your healthcare provider about this drug interaction before taking Floxin.
 
Didanosine
Some forms of didanosine can bind to Floxin in the digestive tract, preventing it from being completely absorbed into the bloodstream. You should take your Floxin dose at least two hours before or six hours after you take didanosine. Not all forms of didanosine react with Floxin, so be sure to ask your pharmacist about this possible interaction with your particular didanosine product.
 
Duloxetine
Floxin may increase the amount of duloxetine in the bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. If you currently take duloxetine, talk to your healthcare provider about this interaction before taking Floxin.
 
Flutamide
Floxin may increase the level of flutamide in the bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely.
 
Fluvoxamine
Floxin may increase the amount of fluvoxamine in the bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for side effects or low blood pressure. If you take fluvoxamine, talk to your healthcare provider about this drug interaction before taking Floxin.
