  1. blood thinners - associating flutamide with warfarin, for example, is very dangerous due to an increased anticoagulant oral effect, with hemoragic risk
  2. drugs for treating digestive disorders and stomach ulcers- cisapride, cimetidine
  3. alpha-blockers- these are medications for blood pressure and enlarged prostate
  4. anti-allergic drugs- astemizole, terfenadine

For a more comprising list of interactions and their hazards consult your doctor.

Missed dose.

Doctors recommend to always administer your medications at the same hour every day. In this way you lower the chances of omitting any of the doses. If it still happened you can take your pill immediately as you remember about it. In case if it’s time for the next scheduled dose, just skip this single dose and continue as before. You should absolutely not take a double Generic Eulexin dose to compensate the forgotten one.

Overdose.

In case of an overdose dyalisis might not be helpful due to the fact that flutamide binds with plasmatic proteins. If you took more pills than you should have had, contact a healthcare provider for a professional monitorization.
