Myfortic Drug Interactions

Cholestyramine
Cholestyramine can bind to Myfortic and decrease the amount of medicine absorbed into the blood, potentially making it less effective. These drugs should not be taken together.
 
Denosumab
Taking denosumab with Myfortic could increase your risk for potentially serious infections. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medicines together. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you develop any signs of infection, such as fever, chills, aches and pains, or coughing, during Myfortic treatment.
 
Echinacea
Echinacea could decrease the effectiveness of Myfortic. Do not take these medicines together without your healthcare provider's approval.
 
Leflunomide
Combining leflunomide with Myfortic 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.
 
Live Vaccinations
Talk to your healthcare provider before receiving any vaccination during Myfortic treatment. "Live" vaccines may not work as well in people taking immunosuppressants such as this.
 
Natalizumab
Combining Myfortic with natalizumab may increase your risk for potentially serious infections. Do not take these drugs together unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise.
 
Oral Contraceptives
Myfortic may make oral contraceptives less effective. Women who use oral contraceptives during Myfortic treatment may want to consider using an additional method of birth control.
 
Pimecrolimus
Taking Myfortic with pimecrolimus could increase your risk for potentially serious Myfortic 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 generally recommended that pimecrolimus cream not be used with medicines that suppress the immune system, including Myfortic.
