Drug Interactions With Fluocinonide
Using fluocinonide in combination with certain other drugs could lead to interactions. For example, fluocinonide can potentially decrease the effectiveness of aldesleukin and corticorelin. To help ensure a safe and effective treatment process, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking.
Fluocinonide (Lidex®, Vanos®) is generally unlikely to interact with other medications. However, there are a few potential drug interactions that may occur. Some of the medicines that may interfere with fluocinonide include:
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when fluocinonide is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Corticosteroids, including fluocinonide, may make aldesleukin (a chemotherapy medication) less effective. In general, these medications should not be used together.
Corticosteroids, including fluocinonide, may make corticorelin less effective. Corticorelin is used as a diagnostic agent in tests for Cushing's syndrome or other similar problems.
