7. Interactions

There are currently no documented interactions with Repatha, according to the product information.

Repatha is not metabolized by cytochrome P450 enzymes; therefore, interactions with concomitant medications that are substrates, inducers, or inhibitors of cytochrome P450 enzymes are unlikely.

Although approximately a 20% decrease in the Cmax and AUC of Repatha was seen when it was administered with a high-intensity statin regimen, this difference is not considered clinically meaningful and does not impact dosing recommendations.

You should refer to the prescribing information for Repatha for any updates or newly noted interactions.
