If avodart & flomax are cy3a4 substrates & sprycel (dasatinib) is an inhibitor, why do interaction checkers show a prob. With sprycel (dasatinib) & avodart but not w/flomax?

If avodart & flomax are cy3a4 substrates & sprycel (dasatinib) is an inhibitor, why do interaction checkers show a prob. With sprycel (dasatinib) & avodart but not w/flomax?

Sprycel (dasatinib) is also extensively metabolized by the cyp3a4 isoenzyme but is also a weak time-dependent inhibitor of cyp3a4 and may therefore potentially increase the concentrations of Avodart and flomax. ...Read more
