Contraindications
Patients with known hypersensitivity to Erythromycin.
Erythromycin is contraindicated with astemizole, terfenadine, cisapride or pimozide. The concurrent administration of these drugs with Erythromycin has been associated with increased blood levels of astemizole, terfenadine, cisapride or pimozide, with an increased risk of life threatening cardiac arrhythmias.
Prolongation of the QT interval and development of ventricular arrhythmias (some of which have been fatal), including atypical ventricular tachycardia (torsades de pointes) have been reported with the intravenous administration of Erythromycin. Limited data suggest that these adverse effects may be associated with abnormally elevated serum Erythromycin concentrations following rapid administration. Erythromycin therefore must not be administered rapidly by direct intravenous injection (intravenous push).
Concomitant use of Erythromycin and simvastatin or lovastatin is contraindicated see Precautions and Interactions).
