Drug Interactions With Etoposide Phosphate

Sipuleucel-T may be less effective if taken with etoposide phosphate. This is because sipuleucel-T is thought to work by stimulating the body's immune system, while etoposide phosphate decreases the activity of the immune system. Talk to your healthcare provider about this possible interaction before using these medicines together.
Tocilizumab may decrease blood levels of etoposide phosphate, potentially making it less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you are taking tocilizumab. He or she may choose to monitor you more closely.
Combining warfarin with etoposide phosphate could increase your risk for potentially dangerous bleeding. If you take warfarin, your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely, and adjust your warfarin dosage if needed, during chemotherapy treatment.
