Cervarix Drug Interactions
Cervarix Drug Interactions ExplainedThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Cervarix is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Caution should be used when giving intramuscular injections to people taking anticoagulant drugs (commonly known as "blood thinners"). Make sure your healthcare providers (including the person giving the injection) know that you are taking an anticoagulant before receiving Cervarix.
If you are taking an immunosuppressant, you may not receive the full benefit of Cervarix, since the immune system may not be fully capable of responding to the vaccine.
In addition, with some vaccines (especially live ones), people taking immunosuppressants may be at a higher risk of actually developing the infection from the vaccine, albeit a milder form. However, because Cervarix is not a live vaccine, this is not a problem.
Final ThoughtsIt is possible that not all drug interactions with Cervarix were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
