Alcohol enhances the effects of Valocordin and can increase its toxicity.
The presence of phenocarbital in Valocordin can induce liver enzymes, and this makes it undesirable to use it simultaneously with drugs that are metabolized in the liver, as their concentration, and accordingly, the effectiveness will decrease as a result of more accelerated metabolism (indirect anticoagulants, antibiotics, sulfonamides, etc.). .
