Drug Interactions With Etoposide

Sipuleucel-T
Sipuleucel-T is thought to work by stimulating the body's immune system. Because etoposide lowers blood cells that are important for the immune system to function properly, it may decrease the effect of sipuleucel-T. Talk to your healthcare provider about this possible interaction before using these medicines together.
 
Tocilizumab
Tocilizumab can lower blood levels of etoposide, potentially making it less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you take tocilizumab. He or she may choose to monitor you more closely.
 
Warfarin
Combining warfarin with etoposide could increase your risk for potentially dangerous bleeding. If you take warfarin during etoposide treatment, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely, and adjust your warfarin dose if needed.
