Voltaren Ophthalmic Drug Interactions

Drug Interactions With Voltaren Ophthalmic Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Voltaren Ophthalmic is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Anticoagulant and Antiplatelet Medications
Combining Voltaren Ophthalmic with other medications that have anticoagulant or antiplatelet activity (commonly described as "blood thinners") might increase the risk of bleeding, including dangerous internal bleeding. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Voltaren Ophthalmic with any such medications, even nonprescription ones.
 
Although the likelihood of a serious bleeding problem occurring as the result of this drug interaction is certainly reduced because Voltaren Ophthalmic is an eye drop, the possibility of such problems cannot be ruled out altogether.
 
Steroid Eye Medications
Voltaren Ophthalmic might increase the risk of side effects due to steroid eye drops and may cause slow healing. It would be unusual for a healthcare provider to intentionally recommend that a person use both Voltaren Ophthalmic and a steroid eye drop at the same time. However, such an interaction might occur if a person was already taking a steroid eye drop for another purpose.
