Can I Take My Current Meds With Decadron?

Tolvaptan
Decadron may decrease the levels of tolvaptan in your blood, potentially making it less effective. In general, these drugs should not be used together. If combined use is necessary, your healthcare provider may need to increase your tolvaptan dose.
 
Topical Tacrolimus
Using Decadron with topical tacrolimus (tacrolimus ointment) may increase your risk for Decadron side effects, such as infections. This interaction is more likely to occur with high Decadron doses or long-term Decadron use. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Decadron with tacrolimus ointment.
 
Ulipristal
Decadron may decrease the levels of ulipristal in your blood, potentially making it less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medications together.
 
Warfarin
Decadron can affect the way your body handles warfarin, increasing your risk for bleeding. Your healthcare provider should monitor you more closely if you take these medications together and adjust your warfarin dose as necessary.
