Drug Interactions With Ciclesonide

Ciclesonide (Omnaris®, Zetonna™) is a steroid medication used to treat nasal allergies. It can potentially interact with at least one other medication.
 
In one study, combining ketoconazole (Nizoral®) with orally inhaled ciclesonide greatly increased the level of ciclesonide in the blood. It is assumed that ciclesonide will interact with ketoconazole in a similar manner (even though it is taken as a nasal spray, not by oral inhalation). Therefore, ciclesonide should not be combined with ketoconazole (particularly ketoconazole that is taken by mouth).
 
Ciclesonide has been studied with a few other medications, and it did not seem to interact with any of them. However, there may be drug interactions with ciclesonide that are currently unknown. Therefore, be sure to check with your healthcare provider and pharmacist before taking ciclesonide with other medications since new drug interaction information may become available at any time.
