What other medications interact with topical calcineurin inhibitors?

Dr. Darria Long Gillespie, MD
Emergency Medicine
If you are taking mifepristone, you should not use topical tacrolimus. If you are taking another CYP3A4 inhibitor, topical tacrolimus may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking an immunosuppressant, pimecrolimus can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking another QT interval prolonging drug, tacrolimus may not be a good option for you.
