Cancer Home > Drug Interactions With Etoposide Injection

Combining roflumilast with etoposide injections could make you more susceptible to infections. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before using these medicines together.
Sipuleucel-T may be less effective if combined with etoposide injections. This is because sipuleucel-T is thought to work by stimulating the body's immune system, while etoposide injections decrease 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, 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 injections 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 dose if needed, during etoposide injection treatment.
