DRUG INTERACTIONS: Ritonavir (Norvir) and ketoconazole (Nizoral, Extina, Xolegel, Kuric) increase fluticasone levels in the body by delaying its metabolism (elimination). It is not clear how important this effect is.
PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies of fluticasone to determine its safety and effectiveness in pregnant women.
NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known whether fluticasone enters breast milk; therefore, it is best to be cautious before using it in nursing mothers.
