There are 2 disease interactions with Orgovyx (relugolix).

Major

Relugolix (applies to Orgovyx) osteoporosis

Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Relugolix is contraindicated for use in women with known osteoporosis because of the risk of further bone loss. Prior to initiating therapy, an assessment of bone mineral density by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is recommended. Carefully consider the risks of treatment in women with a history of a low trauma fracture or risk factors for osteoporosis. Treatment should be limited to 24 months due to risk of continued bone loss which may not be reversible.

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Congestive Heart Failure, Electrolyte Abnormalities, Long QT Syndrome

Androgen deprivation therapy may prolong the QT/QTc interval. Health care providers should consider if benefits of therapy outweigh the potential risks in patients with congenital long QT syndrome, congestive heart failure, electrolyte abnormalities, or taking other drugs that can also prolong the QT interval. Consider periodic monitoring of EKG and electrolytes.
