CellCept Drug Interactions

Pimecrolimus
Taking CellCept with pimecrolimus could increase your risk for potentially serious CellCept side effects, including infection, lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), and skin cancer. Although the risk for these side effects is generally low, it is recommended that pimecrolimus usually not be used with medicines that weaken the immune system, including CellCept.
 
Probenecid
Taking probenecid with CellCept may increase the amount of CellCept in your blood, possibly increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely if you take these medicines together and decrease your CellCept dose if needed.
 
Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
Proton pump inhibitors may decrease the amount of CellCept absorbed into your bloodstream, potentially making it less effective. If you take CellCept, talk to your healthcare provider before taking a PPI.
 
Rifampin
Rifampin may decrease the amount of CellCept in the blood, potentially making it less effective. The manufacturer of CellCept recommends that these medicines should not be taken together, if at all possible. If they are taken together, higher CellCept doses may be needed.
 
Sevelamer
Sevelamer is thought to bind to CellCept in the gut, decreasing the amount of medicine absorbed into the bloodstream. These medicines should not be taken together, if at all possible. If they are taken together, sevelamer should be taken two hours after CellCept.
 
Sipuleucel-T
Combining CellCept with sipuleucel-T can make sipuleucel-T less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together.
 
Tacrolimus
Taking CellCept with tacrolimus may increase your risk for potentially serious side effects, including infection, lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), and skin cancer. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together.
