Menactra Drug Interactions

Medications such as anticoagulants and immunosuppressants have been known to cause drug interactions with Menactra. For example, people taking immunosuppressants such as cortisone, prednisone, or Enbrel may not receive Menactra's full benefits, as the immune system may have trouble responding to the vaccine. To reduce your risk of interactions, tell your healthcare provider about any medications you are taking.
