Thyroid Replacement Medications
If you take medications for an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) together with Estraderm, your healthcare provider may need to increase the dose of your thyroid medication. Your healthcare provider should monitor you and make any necessary adjustments.
Various Antifungals or Antibiotics
Some antibiotic or antifungal medications 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 certain antibiotics or antifungals.
