Potentiated by strong CYP2C8 inhibitors (eg, gemfibrozil); avoid concomitant use; reduce dose if unavoidable (see Adults); monitor frequently, and for moderate CYP2C8 inhibitors. Antagonized by strong CYP3A or moderate CYP2C8 inducers (eg, rifampin); avoid. Potentiates CYP3A substrates (eg, midazolam); avoid concomitant use; decrease CYP3A substrate dose if unavoidable.
