Coartem Drug Interactions

Tamoxifen
The body transforms tamoxifen into another substance, called tamoxifen metabolite. Tamoxifen metabolite is more active than tamoxifen itself. Coartem may decrease the amount of tamoxifen metabolite formed in the body, potentially making tamoxifen less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Coartem with tamoxifen.
 
Tramadol
Coartem can make tramadol less effective at controlling pain. If you are taking tramadol and Coartem together, your healthcare provider will monitor your response to tramadol. Tell your healthcare provider if your pain is not adequately controlled, as you may need a different pain medication.
 

Final Thoughts
