Drug/Drug Class (Mechanism of Interaction by Voriconazole)

Drug Plasma Exposure (Cmax and AUCτ )

Recommendations for Dosage Adjustment/Comments

Sirolimus* (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Significantly Increased

Contraindicated

Rifabutin* (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Significantly Increased

Contraindicated

Efavirenz† (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Significantly Increased

When voriconazole is coadministered with efavirenz, voriconazole oral maintenance dose should be increased to 400 mg q12h and efavirenz should be decreased to 300 mg q24h

High dose Ritonavir (400 mg q12h)† (CYP3A4 Inhibition) Low dose Ritonavir (100mg q12h)†

No Significant Effect of Voriconazole on Ritonavir Cmax or AUCτ Slight Decrease in Ritonavir Cmax and AUCτ

Contraindicated because of significant reduction of voriconazole Cmax and AUCτ Coadministration of voriconazole and low dose ritonavir (100 mg q12h) should be avoided (due to the reduction in voriconazole Cmax and AUCτ) unless an assessment of the benefit/risk to the patient justifies the use of voriconazole

Terfenadine, Astemizole, Cisapride, Pimozide, Quinidine CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Not Studied In Vivo or In Vitro, but Drug Plasma Exposure Likely to be Increased

Contraindicatedbecause of potential for QT prolongation and rare occurrence of Torsades de pointes

Ergot Alkaloids (CYP450 Inhibition)

Not Studied In Vivo or In Vitro, but Drug Plasma Exposure Likely to be Increased

Contraindicated

Cyclosporine* (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

AUCτ Significantly Increased; No Significant Effect on Cmax

When initiating therapy with voriconazole in patients already receiving cyclosporine, reduce the cyclosporine dose to one-half of the starting dose and follow with frequent monitoring of cyclosporine blood levels. Increased cyclosporine levels have been associated with nephrotoxicity. When voriconazole is discontinued, cyclosporine concentrations must be frequently monitored and the dose increased as necessary.

Methadone‡ (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Increased

Increased plasma concentrations of methadone have been associated with toxicity including QT prolongation. Frequent monitoring for adverse events and toxicity related to methadone is recommended during coadministration. Dose reduction of methadone may be needed.

Reduction in the dose of fentanyl and other long-acting opiates metabolized by CYP3A4 should be considered when coadministered with voriconazole. Extended and frequent monitoring for opiate-associated adverse events may be necessary.

Alfentanil (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Significantly Increased

Reduction in the dose of alfentanil and other opiates metabolized by CYP3A4 (e.g., sufentanil) should be considered when coadministered with voriconazole. A longer period for monitoring respiratory and other opiate-associated adverse events may be necessary

Oxycodone (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Significantly Increased

Reduction in the dose of oxycodone and other long-acting opiates metabolized by CYP3A4 should be considered when coadministered with voriconazole. Extended and frequent monitoring for opiate-associated adverse events may be necessary

Frequent monitoring for adverse events and toxicity related to NSAIDs. Dose reduction of NSAIDs may be needed

Tacrolimus* (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

Significantly Increased

When initiating therapy with voriconazole in patients already receiving tacrolimus, reduce the tacrolimus dose to one-third of the starting dose and follow with frequent monitoring of tacrolimus blood levels. Increased tacrolimus levels have been associated with nephrotoxicity. When voriconazole is discontinued, tacrolimus concentrations must be frequently monitored and the dose increased as necessary.

Significantly Increased

When initiating therapy with voriconazole in patients already receiving omeprazole doses of 40 mg or greater, reduce the omeprazole dose by one-half. The metabolism of other proton pump inhibitors that are CYP2C19 substrates may also be inhibited by voriconazole and may result in increased plasma concentrations of other proton pump inhibitors.

HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors (Statins) (CYP3A4 Inhibition)

In Vitro Studies Demonstrated Potential for Voriconazole to Inhibit Metabolism (Increased Plasma Exposure)

Frequent monitoring for adverse events and toxicity related to statins. Increased statin concentrations in plasma have been associated with rhabdomyolysis. Adjustment of the statin dosage may be needed.
