Applies to: vinorelbine and temsirolimus

Consumer information for this interaction is not currently available.

MONITOR: Coadministration of sirolimus or tacrolimus with other drugs that are also metabolized by CYP450 3A4 may result in elevated plasma concentrations of the macrolide immunosuppressant and/or the coadministered drug(s). The mechanism is decreased drug clearance due to competitive inhibition of CYP450 3A4 activity. Although clinical data are lacking, the possibility of prolonged and/or increased pharmacologic effects of the drugs should be considered.

MANAGEMENT: Pharmacologic responses and/or plasma drug levels should be monitored more closely whenever a macrolide immunosuppressant or another substrate of CYP450 3A4 is added to or withdrawn from therapy, and the dosage(s) adjusted as necessary.
