Leukemia Home > Rituxan Drug Interactions

In general, Rituxan should not be combined with pimecrolimus, due to the risk of infections as the result of immune system suppression, lymphoma, and skin cancer.
Combining Rituxan with trastuzumab may increase the risk of low white blood cell counts, thereby increasing the risk of dangerous infections. In some cases, this combination should be avoided.

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not all Rituxan drug interactions were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
