Drug Interactions With Medroxyprogesterone Subcutaneous Injection

Drug Interactions With Medroxyprogesterone Subcutaneous Injection Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Antibiotics
There have been reports of women becoming pregnant while taking antibiotics with hormonal contraceptives, including medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection. These reports suggest that antibiotics could make the contraceptives less effective. At this time, it is not entirely clear whether there is actually an interaction between these medicines, however. If you are using medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection as a form of birth control, you may want to use a backup birth control method while taking an antibiotic, just to be safe.
 
Anti-Seizure Medications
Medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection can cause a loss of bone density, especially with prolonged use. Certain anti-seizure medications (also called anti-epileptics) can also affect bone health. Taking these medications together may further increase your risk for bone loss, osteoporosis, and fractures. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking an anti-seizure medicine with medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection.
 
Corticosteroids
Medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection can cause a loss of bone density, especially with prolonged use. Corticosteroid medications can also affect bone health. Combining medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection with a corticosteroid may further increase your risk for bone loss, osteoporosis, and fractures. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medications together.
 
Cyclosporine
Medroxyprogesterone subcutaneous injection may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, potentially increasing the chance of side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely, and may give you a lower cyclosporine dose, if you take these medications together.
