Drug Interactions With Telaprevir

Repaglinide
Telaprevir may increase the level of repaglinide in the bloodstream, perhaps increasing the risk for side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.

Salmeterol
Telaprevir may increase blood levels of salmeterol, possibly increasing your risk for potentially serious side effects, including heart rhythm problems. You should not take salmeterol with telaprevir.
