Drug Interactions With Ibritumomab

Live Vaccinations
Live vaccines contain live viruses or bacteria. If you receive a live vaccine while using ibritumomab, you might become infected with the virus or bacteria from the vaccine. Also, live vaccines may be less effective in people receiving ibritumomab. Talk to your healthcare provider before receiving a vaccination during or within the first few months after ibritumomab therapy.
 
Medications That Thin the Blood
You may have a higher risk for serious and potentially life-threatening bleeding problems if you use ibritumomab with any medication that thins the blood, such as anticoagulant or antiplatelet medicines. If you combine ibritumomab with a blood thinner, your healthcare provider will monitor your platelet count closely, using a simple blood test, and monitor you closely for bleeding.
 
Sipuleucel-T
Combining ibritumomab with sipuleucel-T can make sipuleucel-T less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these medicines together.
