Moderate Food Interaction
Bremelanotide may affect the absorption of other medications that you take by mouth. In some cases, this may affect how well and/or how fast those medications work, or it may make no difference. If you are taking oral medications that depend on adequate blood levels to be effective (e.G., antibiotics) or oral medications that require a rapid onset of effect (e.G., pain medications), it is recommended that you avoid using bremelanotide. Talk to a healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns, and contact your doctor if your symptoms worsen or your condition changes. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility
bremelanotide - hypertension/CV disease
Bremelanotide is contraindicated in patients who have uncontrolled hypertension or known cardiovascular disease, as it transiently increases blood pressure and reduces heart rate after each dose. Before initiating bremelanotide, and periodically during treatment, consider the patient's cardiovascular risk and ensure blood pressure is well-controlled.
