Menopause Home > More Info on Mimvey Interactions

St. John's Wort
St. John's wort, a commonly used herbal supplement, 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.
 
Thyroid Medications
If you take medications for an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) with Mimvey, your healthcare provider may need to increase the dose of your thyroid medication. He or she should monitor you more carefully and make any necessary dosing adjustments.
 
Various Antibiotics or Antifungals
Some antibiotic or antifungal medications 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 Mimvey with certain antibiotics or antifungals.
 

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not all Mimvey drug interactions were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
