Drug contraindication?

Doc "A" has prescribed furosemide for daily use...............Doc "B" has prescribed oxybutynin for daily use.  Are these two drugs compatible?

    You can ask your Pharmacist. I am a heart recipient and take many medications and mine has found several incompatible medications before my transplant but now all new medications have to be approved by my transplant team. My doctors were thankful for my pharmacist because in a way he saved my life.

    I agree with RIP12- make use of your pharmacist to answer these questions. I thought this Heart Insight article might also be interesting to you- Know your Medicines. Please let us know how else we can help you. Best, Katie

    Good morning,

    Here is a site you can utilize for checking medications: https://reference.medscape.com/drug-interactionchecker

    However your best bet is ALWAYS to talk with your pharmacy.  It's best to use the same pharmacy for all drugs and then they can track everything you're taking.  They would then be best able to tell you if drugs are compatiable.  

    Be well, T
