Drug Interactions With Streptozocin

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Streptozocin

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when streptozocin is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Amphotericin B
Combining amphotericin B with chemotherapy medicines, including streptozocin, may increase the risk for amphotericin B side effects, such as kidney damage, low blood pressure (hypotension), and breathing problems. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely if you use these medicines together.
 
Certain Immunosuppressant Medicines
Using streptozocin in combination with certain medicines that suppress the immune system could increase your risk for potentially serious side effects, including low blood cell counts and infections. Some of these combinations should not be used together, while others may require careful monitoring or adjustments in your medication doses.
 
Clozapine
Taking clozapine with streptozocin can increase your risk for dangerously low white blood cells, which could make you more susceptible to potentially serious infections. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these medicines together. However, do not stop taking clozapine unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 
Doxorubicin
Streptozocin may increase blood levels of doxorubicin and potentially increase your risk for severe bone marrow depression (when the bone marrow does not make adequate amounts of blood cells). If you take doxorubicin, your healthcare provider may need to reduce your dose during streptozocin treatment.
 
Echinacea
Echinacea may decrease the effectiveness of streptozocin. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these products together.
