Drug Interactions
No formal drug-drug interaction studies have been performed.
Since androgen deprivation treatment may prolong the QTc interval, the concomitant use of degarelix with medicinal products known to prolong the QTc interval or medicinal products able to induce Torsades de pointes eg, class IA (eg, quinidine, disopyramide) or class III (eg, amiodarone, sotalol, dofetilide, ibutilide) antiarrhythmic medicinal products, methadone, cisapride, moxifloxacine, antipsychotics, etc should be carefully evaluated (see Precautions).
Degarelix is not a substrate for the human CYP450 system and has not been shown to induce or inhibit CYP1A2, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, CYP2E1 or CYP3A4/5 to any great extent in vitro. Therefore, clinically significant pharmacokinetic drug-drug interactions in metabolism related to these isoenzymes are unlikely.
Incompatibilities: In the absence of compatibility studies, Firmagon must not be mixed with other medicinal products.
