More Medicines That React With Fluvoxamine

Aspirin
Taking fluvoxamine and aspirin together can increase your risk of stomach bleeding. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking aspirin and fluvoxamine together.
 
Buspirone (BuSpar)
Because combining fluvoxamine with buspirone may increase the risk of serotonin syndrome, check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Certain Benzodiazepines
Taking fluvoxamine with certain benzodiazepines can raise the level of benzodiazepine medication in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Some benzodiazepines should not be taken with fluvoxamine, while others can be used at lower dosages.
 
Cisapride (Propulsid)
Taking fluvoxamine with cisapride can increase your risk of a dangerous irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) called QT prolongation. These two medications should not be taken together.
 
Diltiazem (Cardizem, Cartia XT, Dilacor XR, Tiazac)
Taking diltiazem with fluvoxamine can increase your risk of a slow heart rate (bradycardia). Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely (and may need to adjust your dose of diltiazem) when you are taking these medications together.
 
Fentanyl
Combining fluvoxamine with fentanyl may increase the risk of serotonin syndrome. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
