Kemadrin Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Kemadrin is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Medications
Taking Kemadrin 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 interactions from occurring.
 
Antipsychotics
Combining Kemadrin with antipsychotic medications 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. Also, Kemadrin may occasionally make antipsychotic medications less effective.
 
Other Anticholinergic Drugs
Combining an anticholinergic medication with Kemadrin (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of Kemadrin side effects, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
 
Pramlintide
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including Kemadrin) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Combining Kemadrin 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.
