Products That React With Estraderm

Estraderm Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Estraderm is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
A Few Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Estraderm too quickly, leading to low levels of Estraderm in the body. Although this can make Estraderm less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
Barbiturate Medications
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Estraderm too rapidly, leading to low levels of Estraderm in the body. This can make Estraderm less effective, but it is not a serious drug interaction.
 
Cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune)
Estraderm may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dose, or you may need to switch to one of the many Estraderm alternatives.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Protease inhibitors may decrease the ability of your liver to metabolize Estraderm, leading to high levels of Estraderm in the body. This may increase the risk of Estraderm side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Estraderm with a protease inhibitor.
 
Rifamycin Antibiotics
Rifamycin antibiotics may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Estraderm too quickly, leading to low levels of Estraderm in the body. Although this can make Estraderm less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Estraderm too quickly, leading to low levels of Estraderm in the body. Although this can make Estraderm less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
