Bacteria Home > Bactroban Drug Interactions

Bactroban® (mupirocin) is unlikely to react with other drugs. This prescription medication is applied to the skin or inside the nose, depending on the particular product.
Studies have shown that when used correctly, Bactroban is not absorbed into the body to a significant extent. Thus, it is unlikely to have an effect on other medications.
Nonetheless, it is still a good idea to ask about any drug interactions with Bactroban that may apply to your particular situation. If you must apply other skin products, ask your healthcare provider if the products can be applied with Bactroban or if you must stop using the other products temporarily while using this antibiotic.
