Uceris Drug Interactions

Uceris Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Uceris is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
CYP 3A4 Inhibitors
Uceris is broken down (metabolized) in the liver by CYP 3A4 enzymes. Many other drugs known as CYP 3A4 inhibitors slow down the activity of these enzymes and can lead to increased levels of Uceris in the blood, potentially increasing the risk of steroid side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining such medications. It may be recommended to avoid combining strong CYP 3A4 inhibitors with Uceris.
 
Grapefruit and Grapefruit Juice
Eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice can increase the level of Uceris in your blood. It is recommended that you do not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice the entire time you are taking Uceris.
 
Medications That Reduce Stomach Acid
Uceris tablets have a special coating that will not dissolve in an acidic environment, such as the stomach, but will dissolve in a nonacidic environment like the intestines. Medications that lower stomach acid may cause the coating to dissolve too soon, perhaps making Uceris less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before combining such medications.
