Drug Interaction

Although In vitro studies demonstrated the potential of Rifaximin to interact with cytochrome P450 (CYP3A4), a clinical drug-drug interaction study demonstrated that Rifaximin did not significantly affect the pharmacokinetics of midazolam. An additional clinical drug-drug interaction study showed no effect of Rifaximin on the presystemic metabolism of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate. Therefore, clinical interactions with drugs metabolized by human cytochrome P450 isozymes are not expected.
