Dexamethasone Drug Interactions
Dexamethasone may decrease the levels of tolvaptan in your blood, potentially making it less effective. In general, these medications should not be used together. If combined use is necessary, your healthcare provider may need to increase your tolvaptan dosage.
Using dexamethasone with topical tacrolimus (tacrolimus ointment) 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 use. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these products together.
Dexamethasone may decrease the levels of ulipristal in your blood, potentially making it less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking these medications together.
