Quinestrol Disease Interactions
There are 3 disease interactions with quinestrol:
Estrogens (Includes quinestrol) ↔ angioedema
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Angioedema
The use of exogenous estrogens may induce or exacerbate symptoms of angioedema, particularly in women with hereditary angioedema. Close monitoring is recommended when prescribing these agents to patients predisposed to angioedema.
Estrogens (Includes quinestrol) ↔ melasma
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Melasma
The use of exogenous estrogens may occasionally cause chloasma, especially in women with a history of chloasma gravidarum. Women with a tendency to chloasma should avoid exposure to the sun or ultraviolet radiation while taking combination oral contraceptives.
Estrogens/progestogens (Includes quinestrol) ↔ retinal thrombosis
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Visual Defect/Disturbance
Estrogens and progestogens may cause retinal thrombosis. Oral contraceptives should be discontinued if there is unexplained partial or complete loss of vision; onset of proptosis or diplopia; papilledema; or retinal vascular lesions. Therapy with these agents should be administered cautiously in patients who have preexisting ocular problems and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic measures should be instituted. Contact lens wearers who develop visual changes or changes in lens tolerance should be assessed by an ophthalmologist.
