How do conjugated estrogens for injection interact with other medications?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking dabrafenib, enzalutamide, ospemifene, or tizanidine, bazedoxifene and conjugated estrogens can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking estrogen, you should not take bazedoxifene and conjugated estrogens.

If you take bazedoxifene and conjugated estrogens, you should avoid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA).
