Drug Interactions With Capsaicin 8% Patch

At this time, capsaicin 8% patch (Qutenza™) does not have any known drug interactions. However, you should always tell your healthcare provider about any other medications (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements) you are taking. Even though there are no interactions known at this point, it is important to understand that drug interactions may be discovered in the future.
 
Capsaicin 8% patch does not affect the liver enzymes that metabolize most medications (and is therefore unlikely to interact with other medications). Also, only a small amount of the medication is absorbed into the bloodstream, and only for a short while. Nonetheless, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the possible drug interactions that may apply to you.
