Drug Interactions With Polidocanol

Polidocanol (Asclera™) does not have any known drug interactions. However, before treatment, you should be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all medications you take -- including prescription drugs, nonprescription products, and vitamins or supplements. This will help give your healthcare provider a more complete picture of your health and will help him or her determine if you are a good candidate for polidocanol treatment.
When polidocanol is injected properly, almost all of the medication stays in the treated vein, with little exposure to the rest of the body. This helps limit the chance of any interactions occurring.
Nonetheless, during clinical studies, a few people did have measurable levels of polidocanol in their blood after treatment. This suggests that, in some people, widespread exposure to polidocanol may occur to a small extent, increasing the possibility of drug interactions, at least theoretically. However, since it is unknown what problems might occur, it is difficult to guess what exactly might happen.
