Drug Interactions With Dinoprostone Vaginal Insert

Dinoprostone vaginal inserts (Cervidil®) are unlikely to interact with most other medicines. However, they may interact with oxytocin (Pitocin®).
 
Oxytocin is used to stimulate labor, and dinoprostone vaginal inserts may increase its effects. The manufacturer of dinoprostone vaginal inserts recommends that these medications should not be used at the same time. Instead, at least 30 minutes should separate the removal of a dinoprostone vaginal insert and the use of oxytocin.
 
Even though dinoprostone vaginal inserts are not expected to interfere with most medications, it's important to remember that they have not been studied with every medicine. Drug interactions may be discovered in the future.
 
Therefore, tell your healthcare provider about all medications you are taking, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements. Any time you start or stop a medication, talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about interactions that may apply to you.
