Erbitux Drug Interactions
Erbitux is sometimes combined with other anti-cancer medications, including:
- Irinotecan (Camptosar®)
- Fluorouracil (Adrucil®, Carac®, Efudex®, Fluoroplex®).
Irinotecan and Erbitux have been studied together, and do not appear to interact. However, irinotecan and the other anti-cancer medicines could interact with other drugs you take. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the possible interactions that may apply to you any time you start or stop a new medication.
Final ThoughtsYou should always tell your healthcare provider about all the medications you take, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements. Other medicines may be found to interact with Erbitux in the future.
