Products That Can React With Ziac

Ziac Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Ziac is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alcohol
Drinking alcohol may increase the risk of low blood pressure with Ziac. This can result in lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting, particularly if you suddenly stand up. Check with your healthcare provider before combining alcohol and Ziac.
 
Barbiturates
Combining Ziac with a barbiturate may increase the risk of low blood pressure. This may result in lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting, particularly if you suddenly stand up. Check with your healthcare provider before taking a barbiturate with Ziac.
 
Bile Acid Sequestrants
Bile acid sequestrants may bind to Ziac in the digestive tract, preventing it from being adequately absorbed. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take such medications together, it is best to separate your Ziac dosage and the bile acid sequestrant dose by as much time as possible (two hours at the very least).
 
Calcium Channel Blockers
Combining Ziac with certain calcium channel blockers may cause dangerously low blood pressure and, for verapamil or diltiazem, a slow heart rate (bradycardia) and heart failure. You may need to be monitored closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, Ziac should not be taken with a calcium channel blocker.
 
Certain Arrhythmia Medications
Taking Ziac with certain arrhythmia medications may cause a dangerously slow heart rate (bradycardia). You may need to be monitored closely if you take these medications together. In some cases, Ziac should not be combined with an arrhythmia medication.
