Calcitonin Salmon Injection Drug Interactions
Various bisphosphonate products could cause calcitonin salmon injection drug interactions. Clinical studies suggest that calcitonin salmon may not work as well as it should if you have taken a bisphosphonate medication in the past. To reduce the risk of calcitonin salmon injection drug interactions, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are currently taking.
Calcitonin salmon injection (Miacalcin® injection) is unlikely to interact with most medications. However, it can potentially interact with a few medications -- in particular, bisphosphonate medications, which are often used for the same conditions as calcitonin salmon injection. Bisphosphonates include:
- Alendronate (Fosamax®, Fosamax Plus D™)
- Ibandronate (Boniva®)
- Etidronate (Didronel®)
- Pamidronate (Aredia®)
- Risedronate (Actonel®, Actonel With Calcium®)
- Risedronate delayed-release (Atelvia™)
- Tiludronate (Skelid®)
- Zoledronic acid (Reclast®, Zometa®).

The following section explains in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when calcitonin salmon injection is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
In studies, people who had taken a bisphosphonate in the past did not respond to calcitonin salmon as well as people who had not taken a bisphosphonate. If you have taken a bisphosphonate medication recently, calcitonin salmon injection may not work as well as it should.
