At this time, mecasermin does not have any known drug interactions. However, you should tell your child's healthcare provider about all the medications your child is taking, including all prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements.
Even though there are no known mecasermin interactions at this time, it is important to understand that mecasermin has not been tested with all other medications. There may be drug interactions that are discovered in the future. Therefore, any time you start or stop a medication, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the possible drug interactions that may apply to you.
