Dexamethasone Drug Interactions

Pimecrolimus
Using dexamethasone with pimecrolimus may increase your risk for dexamethasone side effects, such as infections. This interaction is more likely to occur with high dexamethasone doses or long-term dexamethasone use. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these drugs together.
 
Praziquantel
Dexamethasone may decrease the levels of praziquantel in your blood, potentially making it less effective. In general, these medications should not be used together.
 
Ranolazine
Dexamethasone may decrease the levels of ranolazine in your blood, potentially making it less effective. In general, these medications should not be used together.
 
Roflumilast
Dexamethasone can weaken the immune system. Because roflumilast could increase this effect, it is generally recommended that these medications not be taken together. However, this interaction is only a concern with long-term dexamethasone use.
 
Romidepsin
Dexamethasone may decrease the levels of romidepsin in your blood, potentially making it less effective. These medications should generally not be used together.
 
Salicylates
Combining salicylates with dexamethasone can increase your risk for gastrointestinal bleeding or ulcers. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Tadalafil
Dexamethasone may decrease the levels of tadalafil in your blood, potentially making it less effective. These medications should generally not be used together if tadalafil is being used for pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs). Your healthcare provider may choose to give you a higher tadalafil dosage if you are using it for erectile dysfunction (ED).
