Drug interactions

With simultaneous use of Ixel with MAO inhibitors, sumatriptan, lithium preparations, there is a risk of developing serotonergic syndrome.
Simultaneous use of Ixel with adrenaline and noradrenaline can provoke the development of hypertensive crisis and heart rhythm disorders.
When taken simultaneously with digoxin (especially when administered parenterally), there is a risk of potentiation of hemodynamic disorders.
With the simultaneous use of Ixel inhibits the hypotensive effect of clonidine and its derivatives.
