Diseases Home > Menveo Drug Interactions

If you are taking an immunosuppressant (such as cortisone or chemotherapy), you may not receive the full benefit of Menveo, since the immune system may not be fully capable of responding to the vaccine. Other drug interactions can occur if Menveo is taken with anticoagulants such as warfarin or heparin. To reduce your risk of problems, tell your healthcare provider about all your current medications.
