Carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenobarbital, and rifampin (Rifadin) may reduce the action of armodafinil by increasing armodafinil's elimination by the liver. Ketoconazole (Nizoral), itraconazole (Sporanox) and erythromycin may increase the effectiveness of armodafinil by reducing the elimination of armodafinil by the liver.

PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies in pregnant women. Use of armodafinil during pregnancy has been asociated with decreased fetal development and spontaneous abortion.
