CONTRAINDICATIONS

Coadministration of AGENERASE is contraindicated with drugs that are highly dependent on CYP3A4 for clearance and for which elevated plasma concentrations are associated with serious and/or life-threatening events. These drugs are listed in Table 6.

Ergot derivatives Dihydroergotamine, ergonovine, ergotamine, methylergonovine
GI motility agent Cisapride
Neuroleptic Pimozide
Sedatives/hypnotics Midazolam, triazolam

If AGENERASE is coadministered with ritonavir, the antiarrhythmic agents flecainide and propafenone are also contraindicated.

Consult the complete prescribing information for AGENERASE Oral Solution for full information.

AGENERASE is contraindicated in patients with previously demonstrated clinically significant hypersensitivity to any of the components of this product.
