Full Prescribing Info
Drug Interactions
Given the low systemic concentration of moxifloxacin following topical ocular administration of the medicinal product, drug interactions are unlikely to occur. While drug-drug interaction studies have not been conducted with VIGAMOX Solution, they have been performed with the oral product at much higher systemic exposures than are achieved by the topical ocular route.
Unlike some other fluoroquinolones, no clinically significant drug-drug interactions between systemically administered moxifloxacin and itraconazole, theophylline, warfarin, digoxin, oral contraceptives, probenicid, ranitidine or glyburide have been observed. In vitro studies indicate that moxifloxacin does not inhibit CYP3A4, CYP2D6, CYP2C9, CYP2C19 or CYP1A2 indicating that moxifloxacin is unlikely to alter the pharmacokinetics of drugs metabolized by these cytochrome P450 isozymes.
