Lanreotide Disease Interactions

There are 7 disease interactions with lanreotide:

Moderate

Lanreotide (applies to lanreotide) hepatic impairment

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Liver Disease

In clinical trials, a reduced clearance of lanreotide was observed in subjects with moderate to severe hepatic impairment. Patients with moderate to severe hepatic impairment should begin treatment with lanreotide 60 mg. Caution should be exercised when using this agent in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment for an extended dosing interval.

Moderate

Lanreotide (applies to lanreotide) renal impairment

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Renal Dysfunction

Lanreotide has not been studied in patients with mild, moderate and severe renal failure. It is recommended to start patients with moderate and severe renal impairment at a lower dose as clinically appropriate.

Moderate

Lanreotide (applies to lanreotide) thyroid abnormalities

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Thyroid Disease

Slight decreases in thyroid function have been seen during treatment with lanreotide. Care should be taken when using this agent in patients with thyroid dysfunctions and it is recommended to monitor thyroid function where clinically indicated.

Moderate

Somatostatin analogs (applies to lanreotide) adrenal insufficiency

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Treatment with somatostatin analogs may suppress the pituitary hormones other than GH/IGF-1. It is recommended to monitor pituitary function prior to initiation of therapy and periodically during treatment, as clinically appropriate. Patients should be monitored for and instructed on the signs and symptoms of adrenal insufficiency during therapy. If adrenal insufficiency is suspected it should be confirmed and treated per standard of care with exogenous glucocorticoids at replacement doses.

Moderate

Somatostatin analogs (applies to lanreotide) bradycardia

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Heart Disease, Hypothyroidism

Bradycardia has been reported with the use of somatostatin analogs. It is recommended to carefully monitor patients with cardiac disorders for the development of bradycardia. Dose adjustments of beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, or correction of electrolyte disturbances may be necessary. Care should be taken when initiating treatment with these agents in patients with bradycardia.

Moderate

Somatostatin analogs (applies to lanreotide) cholelithiasis

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Gallbladder Disease

Somatostatin analogs may reduce gallbladder motility and lead to gallstones formation. It is recommended to assess the gallbladder prior to starting therapy and periodically thereafter.

Moderate

Somatostatin analogs (applies to lanreotide) diabetes

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Diabetes Mellitus

Elevations in blood glucose levels have been reported with the use of somatostatin analogs. Cushing's disease patients with poor glycemic control may be at a higher risk of developing severe hyperglycemia and associated complications, e.g., ketoacidosis. It is recommended to assess the glycemic status of hemoglobin A1C prior to starting treatment with these agents. Self-monitoring of blood glucose and/or FPG assessments should be done every week for the first two to three months and periodically thereafter, as clinically appropriate, as well as over the first two to four weeks after any dose increase. If uncontrolled hyperglycemia persists, despite appropriate medical management, the dose of these agents should be reduced or discontinued.

Drug Interaction Classification

These classifications are only a guideline. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific individual is difficult to determine. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
