Echinacea can make Nexavar less effective. Do not take echinacea during Nexavar treatment unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise.
Combining leflunomide and Nexavar may increase your risk for blood cell problems, including abnormally low red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

Taking it with other medications that may cause QT prolongation can increase your risk for this potentially life-threatening problem. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you for this problem if you take Nexavar with a QT-prolonging medication.
Combining Nexavar with natalizumab may increase your risk for developing infections, including potentially serious infections. It is generally recommended that these medications not be taken together.
