Taking probenecid with Myfortic may increase the amount of Myfortic 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 Myfortic dose if needed.
Rifampin may decrease the amount of Myfortic in the blood, potentially making it less effective. Do not take these medicines together without first talking to your healthcare provider. If your healthcare provider recommends both of these drugs, he or she will likely monitor you more closely and increase your Myfortic dosage if needed.
Sevelamer is thought to bind to Myfortic in the gut, decreasing the amount of medicine absorbed into the body. These drugs should not be taken together, if at all possible. If they are taken together, sevelamer should be taken two hours after Myfortic.
Combining Myfortic with sipuleucel-T may make sipuleucel-T less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together.
Taking Myfortic with tacrolimus may increase your risk for potentially serious side effects, including infection, lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), and skin cancer. Do not use tacrolimus during treatment with Myfortic, especially the cream formulation, without first talking to your healthcare provider.
