Drug Interactions

Gardasil can potentially interact with a number of medicines (see Gardasil Drug Interactions for more information).

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider Before Taking Gardasil?

Prior to taking Gardasil, talk with your healthcare provider if you have:
  • A fever or are feeling ill
  • A bleeding disorder, such as hemophilia or thrombocytopenia
  • A poorly functioning immune system (such as with HIV, AIDS, or cancer)
  • Any allergies, including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are:
  • Taking anticoagulants ("blood thinners")
  • Pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant (see Gardasil and Pregnancy)
  • Breastfeeding.
Also, tell your healthcare provider about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
(Click Gardasil Precautions and Warnings for more information, including information on who should not get the vaccine.)

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you are late for a Gardasil injection, call your healthcare provider to schedule your next injection as soon as you remember. You do not need to "start over" with the three-injection series if you are late for an injection.
