Drug Interactions With Mimvey Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Mimvey is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Barbiturates
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Mimvey too quickly, possibly leading to low levels of Mimvey in the bloodstream. Although this can make Mimvey less effective, it is not a serious drug interaction.
 
Cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune)
Estrogen and progestin hormones (such as the ones in Mimvey) may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, possibly increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dosage, or you may need to switch to one of the many alternatives to Mimvey.
 
Grapefruit Juice
Grapefruit juice may decrease your liver's ability to metabolize Mimvey, possibly leading to high levels of Mimvey in the bloodstream. This may increase the risk of Mimvey side effects.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Protease inhibitors may decrease your liver's ability to metabolize Mimvey, potentially leading to high levels of Mimvey in the bloodstream. This may increase the risk of Mimvey side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.
 
Rifamycin Antibiotics
Rifamycin antibiotics may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Mimvey too quickly, possibly leading to low levels of Mimvey in the bloodstream. Although this can make Mimvey less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
Some Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Mimvey too quickly, possibly leading to low levels of Mimvey in the bloodstream. Although this can increase the risk of spotting or bleeding and make Mimvey less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
