Myfortic Drug Interactions

More Detail on Myfortic Drug Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that could occur if Myfortic is combined with any of the drugs mentioned above.
 
Acyclovir and Valacyclovir
Combining Myfortic with acyclovir or valacyclovir could increase your blood levels of both medications, potentially increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely if you take these drugs together.
 
Aluminum- or Magnesium-Containing Antacids
Aluminum and magnesium can bind to Myfortic in the digestive tract, decreasing the amount of the drug absorbed into your bloodstream. Separate your Myfortic dosage from that of the antacids by at least two hours to reduce the risk of this interaction.
 
Antibiotics
Antibiotic medications may reduce the amount of Myfortic in your blood, potentially making it less effective. Make sure your healthcare provider knows you are taking Myfortic if you are given an antibiotic. The amount of medication in your blood should return to normal soon after you stop taking the antibiotic.
 
Azathioprine
Azathioprine is an immunosuppressant medicine that works in a similar way as Myfortic. Therefore, it is generally recommended that these two medications not be taken together.
 
Belatacept
Belatacept may increase blood levels of Myfortic, potentially increasing the risk for side effects. Belatacept is commonly used in combination with Myfortic to prevent kidney transplant rejection. If you are given this combination, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely, especially when you first start taking these medicines together.
