Drug Interactions
No interaction studies have been performed with interferon beta-1a in humans.
Interferons have been reported to reduce the activity of hepatic cytochrome P450-dependent enzymes in humans and animals. Caution should be exercised when administering Rebif in combination with medicinal products that have a narrow therapeutic index and are largely dependent on the hepatic cytochrome P450 system for clearance, e.g. antiepileptics and some classes of antidepressants.
The interaction of Rebif with corticosteroids or adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) has not been studies systemically. Clinical studies indicate that multiple sclerosis patients can receive Rebif and corticosteroids or ACTH during relapses.
