Vimovo Drug Interactions

Vimovo Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Vimovo is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
ACE Inhibitors
Vimovo might reduce the effectiveness of ACE inhibitors for lowering blood pressure and may also increase the risk for kidney damage. If you take Vimovo with an ACE inhibitor, your healthcare provider should monitor your blood pressure and your kidney function to watch for this interaction.
 
Certain Antifungal Medications
Combining Vimovo with certain antifungals may decrease the effectiveness of the antifungal (due to decreased absorption) and may also increase the level of Vimovo in the blood. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Certain Diuretics
Vimovo may decrease the effectiveness of many diuretics. Additionally, combining Vimovo with a diuretic may increase the risk of kidney damage. If you take such medications together, your healthcare provider should monitor your kidney function and make sure that your diuretic is still working well.
 
In addition, Vimovo can cause low blood magnesium (hypomagnesemia). Because certain diuretics can also cause this problem, combining Vimovo with one of these diuretics could cause severely low blood magnesium levels, which may lead to serious side effects such as muscle spasms, irregular heart rhythms, or seizures.
 
Your healthcare provider may decide to monitor magnesium levels periodically if you are taking Vimovo with one of these diuretics.
  
Diazepam
Vimovo may increase the level of diazepam in the bloodstream. You may wish to discuss this with your healthcare provider prior to starting Vimovo.
