Gardasil Drug Interactions

More Details About Gardasil Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Gardasil is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Anticoagulants
People taking anticoagulants who are given an injection into a muscle are more likely to have bleeding under the skin and in the muscle. Talk to your healthcare provider about whether the benefits of taking Gardasil outweigh the risks of bleeding from the injection.
 
Immunosuppressants
If you are taking immunosuppressant medications, Gardasil may not work as well as it should. Gardasil works by stimulating your immune system to make antibodies that will fight off the HPV virus. If you are taking medications that suppress and weaken the immune system, your immune system may not be able to make enough antibodies. This does not mean that you cannot get the Gardasil vaccine; it just may not work as well.
 
Other Vaccines
Giving Gardasil at the same time as most other vaccines has not been studied. It is not known if Gardasil will interact with many other vaccines. However, Gardasil can be given at the same time as the hepatitis B vaccine without any problems.
