There is always a chance that any medications can interact when taken together. If you are taking corticosteroids, Fluzone's effectiveness may be decreased, because these medications weaken your immune system. Blood thinners may cause excessive bleeding at the site of injection.

Tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, including vitamins, minerals and over-the-counter medications, as well as any herbal remedies.
