Does Tacrolimus Interact With Enbrel?
Thanks for asking on HealhcareMagic.
Enbrel (etanercept) alone has the known side effect of causing neutropenia. So, I would not really consider it as a drug interaction. But whether used singly or in combination, Enbrel can give you neutropenia.
Let me know if I could help further.
Use of Tacrolimus can be contributory
Thanks for writing back.
Tacrolimus too can cause neutropenia. Since you already have a long history of using Enbrel, it is unlikely that Enbrel would abruptly cause it. Rather, the cause can perhaps be attibuted to Tacrolimus, especially due to the summative action of both ingredients having the capacity to cause neutropenia.
