Drug Interactions With Mycophenolate
Cholestyramine can bind to mycophenolate, which can significantly decrease the amount of medicine absorbed into the blood. This could make mycophenolate less effective and increase your risk for transplant rejection. Do not take these drugs together unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise.
Cyclosporine may decrease blood levels of mycophenolate. These medicines are given in combination. However, because of this interaction, your healthcare provider may need to change your mycophenolate dosage if your dose of cyclosporine is adjusted or if you stop taking cyclosporine.
Taking denosumab with mycophenolate could increase your risk for potentially serious infections. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together and contact your healthcare provider immediately if you develop any signs of infection, such as fever, chills, aches and pains, or coughing.
Echinacea could decrease the effectiveness of mycophenolate. Do not take these drugs together without your healthcare provider's approval.
Combining leflunomide with mycophenolate may increase your risk for low blood cell counts, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely.
Talk to your healthcare provider before receiving any vaccination during mycophenolate treatment. "Live" vaccines may not work as well in people taking immunosuppressants such as mycophenolate.
Combining mycophenolate with natalizumab may increase your risk for potentially serious infections. You should not take these drugs together unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise.
