Drug Interactions With Biperiden
More Information on Interactions With Biperiden
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when biperiden is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Medications
Taking biperiden with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications to prevent drug interactions from occurring.
Combining an anticholinergic medication with biperiden (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of side effects of biperiden, such as:
- Dry mouth
- Dry eyes
- Difficulty passing urine.
Combining biperiden with antipsychotic medications may reduce the effectiveness of the antipsychotic medications. Also, it can increase the risk of certain side effects, such as an intestinal blockage or heat stroke. When taking such medications together, make sure to watch for any signs of an intestinal blockage (especially severe constipation) or heat stroke.
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including biperiden) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Therefore, taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
Combining biperiden with a tricyclic antidepressant can increase the risk of certain side effects, such as an intestinal blockage or heat stroke. When using such medications together, make sure to watch for any signs of an intestinal blockage (especially severe constipation) or heat stroke.
