Requip Drug Interactions
Certain Requip drug interactions may cause your body to metabolize the medicines differently than intended. Some of the more common drug interactions to be aware of include estrogens, ciprofloxacin, and dopamine antagonists. The results of some Requip interactions will vary immensely, so it is vital that you consult a healthcare professional before taking a new drug with Requip.
Requip® (ropinirole hydrochloride) potentially has a number of other medicines that it can interact with. Some of these Requip drug interactions include:
- Ciprofloxacin (Cipro®, Cipro XR®)
- Dopamine antagonists, including neuroleptics (phenothiazines, butyrophenones, thioxanthenes) and metoclopramide.
Taking both ciprofloxacin and Requip together may alter the way in which your body breaks down and gets rid of these medications. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress closely if you are taking both of these drugs.
Taking both estrogen and Requip may alter the way in which your body is meant to metabolize these medications. If you stop or start estrogen therapy while taking Requip, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress closely during this time.
Because Requip is a dopamine agonist, taking a dopamine antagonist and Requip may alter the way in which your body breaks down and gets rid of these medications. Before recommending Requip and a dopamine antagonist, your healthcare provider will consider the potential benefits and risks for your particular situation.
