Sorilux Drug Interactions
Sorilux may interfere with certain other medications. Although it is applied to the skin, some of the medication does enter the bloodstream and could Sorilux potentially interact with several other drugs, such as calcium, lithium, and thiazide diuretics. If you use too much Sorilux while taking any of these products, it may cause high levels of calcium in the blood.
Even though Sorilux® (calcipotriene foam) is applied to the skin, some of the medication is absorbed into the bloodstream and can potentially react with several other medications.
Some of the drugs that may lead to interactions with Sorilux include but are not limited to:
- Lithium (Eskalith®, Lithobid®)
- Thiazide diuretics (and thiazide-like diuretics), such as:
- Vitamin D.
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when Sorilux is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Sorilux is a synthetic form of vitamin D. Using too much may cause high levels of calcium in the blood (known as hypercalcemia). Taking calcium could make this problem worse. For people using Sorilux appropriately, a normal dosage of a calcium supplement is unlikely to cause problems.
