Can Nulojix interact with other medications or foods?

No studies have found that Nulojix (belatacept) interacts with any other drugs or with any food. However, before you begin treatment with this medication, which is given to reduce the risk of organ rejection after a kidney transplant, give your doctor a list of all prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbal remedies, and supplements that you take.

Once you begin treatment with Nulojix, do not take any new drug, herbal remedy, or supplement without consulting your doctor first. You should also tell your doctor if you've recently received any vaccines or are scheduled to receive any vaccines before you begin Nulojix treatment. A vaccine may not work as well while you're on Nulojix.
