Drug interaction of RUCAPARIB

Co-administration of rucaparib tablets may increase the systemic exposure of CYP1A2, CYP3A, CYP2C9, or CYP2C19 substrates, which can increase the risk of toxicities of these medicines. Adjust the dosage of CYP1A2, CYP3A, CYP2C9, or CYP2C19 substrates, in case clinically indicated. If co-administration with warfarin (a CYP2C9 substrate) cannot be avoided, consider increasing the frequency of international normalized ratio (INR) monitoring.
