  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  It is metabolised by the cytochrome P450 isoenzyme CYP3A4.Cisapride is metabolised by the cytochrome P450 isoenzyme CYP3A4. Use with drugs that significantly inhibit this enzyme is contra-indicated as it may result in increased plasma concentrations of cisapride and hence a greater risk of QT interval prolongation and ventricular arrhythmias. Examples of such drugs include the azole antifungals ketoconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole, and miconazole; the macrolide antibacterials troleandomycin, azithromycin, erythromycin, and clarithromycin; the NNRTIs delavirdine and efavirenz; and the HIV-protease inhibitors. Nefazodone may interact similarly. It should not be used in patients receiving other medication known to prolong the QT interval, including quinine or halofantrine, terfenadine, astemizole, certain antiarrhythmics such as amiodarone or quinidine, some antidepressants such as amitriptyline, phenothiazine antipsychotics, and sertindole. Cimetidine may enhance its bioavailability. Grapefruit juice also increases the bioavailability and they should not be taken together. In addition, drugs such as potassium-sparing diuretics, or insulin in acute settings, can result in altered electrolyte balance, and use with cisapride may also increase the risk of arrhythmias.,

►  Contraindication : Gastrointestinal haemorrhage, Hypersensitivity, infants for up to 3 months after birth, renal impairment, hepatic impairment, macrolide antibacterials, prolonged QT interval ,
Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 1872   Edition : 37,
  ►  Mechanism of Action :   It is a substituted benzamide used for its prokinetic properties. It stimulates gastrointestinal motility, probably by increasing the release of acetylcholine in the gut wall at the level of the myenteric plexus, increases the resting tone of the lower oesophageal sphincter, and increases the amplitude of lower oesophageal contractions. Gastric emptying is accelerated and the mouth-to-caecum transit time is reduced. Colonic peristalsis is also increased which decreases colonic transit time.,
