Reclast Drug Interactions

Reclast Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Reclast is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglycosides
Taking Reclast with an aminoglycoside antibiotic can increase the risk of low blood calcium (hypocalcemia) and kidney damage. Talk to your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.
 
Diuretics
Combining Reclast with a diuretic may increase the risk of kidney damage. It is important that you be adequately hydrated before your Reclast dose, particularly if you are taking a diuretic. If you are not adequately hydrated, your healthcare provider may need to give you IV fluids before your injection. Also, some diuretics (but not all) can increase the risk of low blood calcium when taken with Reclast.
 
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Taking an NSAID with Reclast may increase the risk of kidney damage, particularly in people who already have kidney disease. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining Reclast with an NSAID.
 
Teriparatide
In studies, combining teriparatide with medications like Reclast seemed to make teriparatide less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Vancomycin
Taking Reclast with vancomycin can increase your risk of kidney damage. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications, particularly if you already have kidney disease.
