People who are receiving aldesleukin or corticorelin may not be able to use amcinonide, as these drug interactions may interfere with the effectiveness of the medications. To avoid these and other possible problems, talk to your healthcare provider before beginning treatment with amcinonide about all medications, supplements, and vitamins you are taking.
