Docefrez Drug Interactions
Docefrez Drug Interactions ExplainedThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when Docefrez is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Combining Docefrez with amphotericin B could increase your risk for certain 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.
Taxanes, including Docefrez, may increase blood levels of anthracycline medications and increase the risk for anthracycline side effects, especially heart damage. If you use these medicines together, your healthcare provider will likely separate the doses to help minimize the risk of this interaction. You will also be closely monitored for anthracycline toxicity.
Docefrez may increase blood levels of aripiprazole, potentially increasing your risk for aripiprazole side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to lower your aripiprazole dose during Docefrez treatment if you experience bothersome aripiprazole side effects.
Biologic and Immunologic Medications
Combining Docefrez with biologic and immunologic medications could increase your risk for potentially serious side effects, including low blood cell counts and infections. It is generally recommended that Docefrez not be used in combination with certain biologic and immunologic medications because of this risk. Other biologics and immunologics may require careful monitoring if used with Docefrez.
Taking clozapine and Docefrez together may increase the risk of dangerously low white blood cells, which could increase your risk for potentially serious infections. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking clozapine during Docefrez treatment. However, you should not stop taking clozapine unless your healthcare provider tells you to do so.
