Alzheimers Home > Medications That React With Namenda

Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors
Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors make urine less acidic, which decreases the body's ability to excrete Namenda through the urine. This could lead to high levels of Namenda in the blood. Although this interaction is probably most likely to occur with carbonic anhydrase inhibitors that are taken by mouth, carbonic anhydrase eyedrops could also cause problems.
 
Dextromethorphan
Dextromethorphan and Namenda affect certain brain receptors in a similar way. Therefore, it is not known if it is safe to take these medications together. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these two medications. Dextromethorphan is an active ingredient in many different prescription and non-prescription cough medications.
 
Ketamine (Ketalar)
Ketamine and Namenda affect certain brain receptors in a similar way. Therefore, it is not known if it is safe to take these medications together. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.
 
Sodium Bicarbonate
Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) makes urine less acidic, which decreases the body's ability to excrete Namenda through the urine. This could lead to high levels of Namenda in the blood. This is not expected to be a problem with normal consumption of sodium bicarbonate in food. However. it is likely to be a problem with a large consumption of sodium bicarbonate, such as with sodium bicarbonate tablets.
