The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Trelstar is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Medications That Cause Hyperprolactinemia
The manufacturer of Trelstar recommends it not be used with medications that increase prolactin levels. High prolactin levels cause a decrease in gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptors in the pituitary gland.
Because Trelstar works by binding to GnRH receptors, a decrease may alter Trelstar's effectiveness. It is unknown if this drug interaction actually occurs, however, as it has never been studied.
There have been reports of increased blood glucose levels in people with diabetes who took medications similar to Trelstar in combination with diabetes medications. If you have diabetes, your healthcare provider may have you check your blood glucose levels during treatment. The doses of your diabetes medications may need to be changed.
It is possible that not all drug interactions with Trelstar were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
