Drug Interactions
An increased bone marrow toxicity must be expected when combined with other myelosuppressants or therapeutic measures such as radiotherapy. Nephrotoxic and ototoxic substances (e.g. Aminoglycoside, Amphotericine-β) must not be administered concomitantly with Cisplatin since an increased nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity is to be expected also in this case.
Chelating agents such as Penicillamine should not be administered concomitantly with Cisplatin since the combination lowers the efficacy of Cisplatin.
Due to a possibly reduced renal excretion, substances which are eliminated primarily via the kidneys among other cytostatic agents such as Bleomycin and Methotrexate should only be administered with special care during or after the treatment with cisplatin.
