Is Odefsey compatible with Flonase
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Before answering your specific question, it's always good to ask about potential drug-drug, drug-supplement/vitamin/over-the-counter interactions, as with some medications, there can be significant problems due to interactions. Some interactions can lower the effectiveness of medications, others can increase the drug to toxic levels.
I recommend that people empower themselves (and help keep busy doctors and healthcare providers from making mistakes) by checking for interactions themselves. One easy way to do this is with online or smart-phone apps. I like using www.hiv-druginteractions.org or Epocrates.
So, to your specific drug interaction question; a 2 minute tap on my iPhone Epocrates app says that there are no significant interaction with Odefsey and Flonase. This is relevant, since Flonase does have the potential for serious interactions with commonly used protease inhibitors and boosting drugs, like Norvir or cobicistat.
I hope that's helpful, BY
