Interactions With Thioridazine Explained

In general, thioridazine should not be combined with other medications that prolong the QT interval. Some medications are more likely than others to prolong the QT interval. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining thioridazine with any other medications that prolong the QT interval. It may be appropriate in some circumstances to use these medications together, especially if your heart rhythm is carefully monitored.
 
Similarly, it is best to avoid using thioridazine with medications that can increase the level of thioridazine in your body, due to the increased risk of side effects, including QT prolongation. However, your healthcare provider may recommend using these medications along with thioridazine, especially if you are closely monitored.
 

Final Thoughts on Drug Interactions With Thioridazine

Not every thioridazine drug interaction was discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the drug interactions with thioridazine that may apply to you. During treatment with thioridazine, you should not take any other medication (including non-prescription medications) without first talking with your healthcare provider. This is important because so many other medications can interact dangerously with thioridazine.
