Drug
AcenocoumarolThe androgen, Testosterone, may incrase the anticoagulant effect of the Vitamin K antagonist, Acenocoumarol. Monitor for changes in the therapeutic effect of Acenocoumarol if Testosterone is initiated, discontinued or dose changed.
CyclosporineThe androgen, Testosterone, may increase the hepatotoxicity of Cyclosporine. Testosterone may also elevate serum concentrations of Cyclosporine. Consider alternate therapy or monitor for signs of renal and hepatic toxicity.
WarfarinThe androgen, Testosterone, may incrase the anticoagulant effect of the Vitamin K antagonist, Warfarin. Monitor for changes in the therapeutic effect of Warfarin if Testosterone is initiated, discontinued or dose changed.
