Can I Take My Medicines With Zithromax?

Carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Epitol, Tegretol, Tegretol-XR, Equetro)
If you are taking both Zithromax and carbamazepine, your body may metabolize carbamazepine differently than intended and significantly increase the level of the drug in your system. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress and adjust your dose accordingly. This interaction has not been demonstrated with Zithromax specifically but has been reported with other similar antibiotics.
 
Nelfinavir (Viracept)
If you are taking Zithromax with nelfinavir, your body may metabolize both drugs differently than intended and significantly increase the amount of Zithromax in your system. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress in this situation, although dosage adjustments are not usually necessary.
 
Quinine
In general, quinine should not be combined with Zithromax, as dangerously high levels of quinine in the blood may result.
