Menopause Home > Do I Need to Worry About Covaryx Drug Interactions?

St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Covaryx too quickly, which could lead to low levels of Covaryx in the body. Although this can make Covaryx less effective, it is not a serious drug interaction.
Thyroid Medications
If you take medications for an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) with Covaryx, your healthcare provider may need to increase the dose of your thyroid medication. Your healthcare provider should monitor you during treatment and make any necessary dosing adjustments.
Various Antibiotics or Antifungals
Some antibiotic or antifungal medications can decrease the ability of your liver to metabolize Covaryx, possibly leading to high levels of Covaryx in the body. This may increase the risk of Covaryx side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Covaryx with certain antibiotics or antifungals.
Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
Combining Covaryx with warfarin may increase your risk of bleeding. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely during treatment and adjust your warfarin dosage, especially when you start or stop Covaryx.
