Zyloprim Interactions

Didanosine
Zyloprim may increase the level of didanosine in the blood, increasing your chance of side effects. In general, this combination of medications should be avoided, if possible.
 
Diuretics
Diuretics may increase the risk of toxic effects of Zyloprim. If you take Zyloprim with a diuretic, your healthcare provider should periodically test your kidney function (using a simple blood test). Problems due to combining a diuretic with Zyloprim are more likely to occur in people with kidney problems.
 
Mercaptopurine
If you take Zyloprim with mercaptopurine, your dose of mercaptopurine must be reduced significantly, in order to prevent serious side effects of mercaptopurine.
 
Warfarin
Zyloprim may increase the level of warfarin in the blood, increasing the risk bleeding. Your healthcare provider should monitor you more closely when you start or stop Zyloprim (or even when you change your Zyloprim dose).
