Erivedge Drug Interactions
P-glycoprotein (Pgp) Inhibitors
P-glycoprotein is a protein found in the body. One of its roles is to help remove substances, such as medications, from the tissues in the body so they can be excreted through the urine or feces. Pgp helps remove Erivedge from the body, and certain medications called Pgp inhibitors decrease the activity of Pgp.
Thus, taking Erivedge with one of these drugs causes Erivedge to be removed more slowly, potentially increasing the amount in your body, which could increase your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely for side effects if you take these medicines together.
