Drug Interactions With Tacrolimus Ointment

Immunosuppressant Medications
It is generally recommended that people taking other immunosuppressant medications not use tacrolimus ointment, due to the increased risk for infection, lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes), and skin cancer. The risk for these side effects is higher with higher immunosuppressant doses and long-term use. Talk to your healthcare provider before using tacrolimus ointment with another immunosuppressant medicine.
