DRUG INTERACTIONS

Cytosine arabinoside, a cytostatic agent, has been reported to inactivate the antifungal activity of Ancobon (flucytosine) by competitive inhibition. Drugs which impair glomerular filtration may prolong the biological half-life of flucytosine.

Drug/Laboratory Test Interactions

Measurement of serum creatinine levels should be determined by the Jaffé reaction, since Ancobon (flucytosine) does not interfere with the determination of creatinine values by this method. Most automated equipment for measurement of creatinine makes use of the Jaffé reaction.
