Daptacel Drug Interactions
Daptacel Drug Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Daptacel is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Caution should be taken when giving intramuscular injections (including Daptacel) to individuals taking anticoagulant medications. Make sure your healthcare providers (including the nurse giving the vaccine) know that your child is taking an anticoagulant.
If your child is taking an immunosuppressant, he or she may not receive the full benefit of Daptacel, since the immune system may not be fully capable of responding to the vaccine.
Additionally, with some vaccines (especially live vaccines), people taking immunosuppressants may be at a higher risk of actually developing the infection (usually a mild form) from the vaccine. However, because Daptacel is not a live vaccine, this is not a problem.
It is possible that not all drug interactions were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific drug interactions with Daptacel that may apply to you.
