EstroGel Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when EstroGel 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 EstroGel too quickly, leading to low levels of EstroGel in the body. Although this can make EstroGel less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
Barbiturate Medications
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in EstroGel too rapidly, leading to low levels of EstroGel in the body. This can make EstroGel less effective, but it is not a serious drug interaction.
 
Cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune)
EstroGel 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 EstroGel alternatives.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Protease inhibitors may decrease the ability of your liver to metabolize EstroGel, leading to high levels of EstroGel in the body. This may increase the risk of EstroGel side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining EstroGel with a protease inhibitor.
 
Rifamycin Antibiotics
Rifamycin antibiotics may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in EstroGel too quickly, leading to low levels of EstroGel in the body. Although this can make EstroGel 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 EstroGel too quickly, leading to low levels of EstroGel in the body. Although this can make EstroGel less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
