Drug Interactions With Etoposide

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Etoposide

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when etoposide is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Amphotericin B
Combining etoposide and amphotericin B could increase your risk for potentially serious amphotericin B side effects, including kidney damage, low blood pressure (hypotension), and breathing problems. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely if you use these medicines together.
 
Aripiprazole
Etoposide may increase blood levels of aripiprazole, increasing your risk for aripiprazole side effects. If you use these medicines together, let your healthcare provider know if you experience any potential side effects of aripiprazole. He or she may choose to adjust your aripiprazole dose.
 
Atovaquone
Combining etoposide and atovaquone may increase blood levels of etoposide, increasing the risk for etoposide side effects. To avoid the possibility of this interaction, the doses of these medicines should be separated by at least one or two days.
 
Biologic and Immunologic Medications
Combining etoposide with biologic and immunologic medications that suppress the immune system could increase your risk for potentially serious side effects, including low blood cell counts and infections. Etoposide should not be used in combination with some biologics or immunologic medicines, while other combinations will require dosage adjustments or careful monitoring. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you are taking a biologic or immunologic medicine.
 
Clozapine
Using clozapine and etoposide together may increase the risk for dangerously low white blood cells, thereby increasing the risk for potentially serious infections. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction. However, you should not stop taking clozapine unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
