Orthoclone OKT3 Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when Orthoclone OKT3 is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Indomethacin
There have been reports of brain disease and problems with brain function occurring in people who took indomethacin while receiving Orthoclone OKT3. Do not combine indomethacin with Orthoclone OKT3, unless your healthcare provider tells you otherwise.
 
Live Vaccinations
Live vaccines are vaccines that contain live viruses or bacteria. Because Orthoclone OKT3 decreases the function of the immune system, you may be at risk for infection with the virus or bacteria if you receive a live vaccine during Orthoclone OKT3 treatment. Also, live vaccines may be less effective in people undergoing Orthoclone OKT3 treatment. Talk to your healthcare provider before receiving a vaccination or immunization.
 
Immunosuppressants
Combining Orthoclone OKT3 with other medications that affect the immune system may increase your risk for potentially serious side effects, including infections. This does not mean you cannot use these medications together. In fact, some immunosuppressants are commonly used with Orthoclone OKT3. However, it is generally recommended that the doses of the other immunosuppressants be reduced if they are to be given in combination with Orthoclone OKT3.
