Drug Interactions With Fluocinolone Oil

It may be not be safe to use aldesleukin, corticorelin, or deferasirox during treatment with fluocinolone oil. Drug interactions such as these may decrease the effectiveness of the medications or increase your risk for potentially serious side effects. Although fluocinolone oil is unlikely to react with most medications, talk to your healthcare provider about all other vitamins, supplements, and medications you are taking.

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Fluocinolone Oil

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when fluocinolone oil is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aldesleukin
Corticosteroids, such as fluocinolone oil, can make aldesleukin less effective. In general, these medicines should not be used together.
 
Corticorelin
Corticorelin is used as a test to help healthcare providers differentiate between types of Cushing's syndrome, or similar conditions. Fluocinolone oil may interfere with corticorelin test results. Make sure your healthcare provider knows you have been using fluocinolone oil if you are receiving a corticorelin test.
 
Deferasirox
Fluocinolone oil may increase the risk for certain deferasirox side effects, in particular the risk for stomach or intestinal bleeding. This reaction is only expected to be a potential problem in cases where significant amounts of fluocinolone oil were absorbed through the skin into the body and caused side effects, which could happen with long-term fluocinolone oil use.
