Xerese Drug Interactions

There are currently no known drug interactions with Xerese, and reactions are unlikely. However, since Xerese could irritate the skin, it may be wise to consult your healthcare provider if you use other skin products that are potentially irritating. In addition, let your healthcare provider know about any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription drugs.

An Overview of Interactions With Xerese

Xerese™ (acyclovir and hydrocortisone) does not have any known drug interactions. Because only a small amount of the medication is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream, Xerese would be unlikely to interact with other medications taken by mouth.
 
Xerese has not been studied with all other medications. Therefore, there could be Xerese drug interactions that have not been discovered yet. In addition, Xerese has not been studied with other medications that are applied to the skin.
 
Because Xerese can irritate the skin, you might want to avoid using other skincare products on the affected area during treatment. If you need to apply other skin products that may be irritating, ask your healthcare provider about the best way to use these products with Xerese.
 

Final Thoughts

Although other medications are unlikely to react with Xerese, it's still a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider about any particular drug interactions that may apply to you. Make sure your healthcare provider has a complete list of all the medications you currently take, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements.
