Taking Pneumonia and Influenza vaccine seven days before taking Densumab injection.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Can my mother take Pneumonia vaccine (Pneumovax 23) and Influenza vaccine (Influgen 0.5 ml) seven days before taking Denosumab (Olimab - product of India) injection. She is taking this injection twice in a year i.e on 1st March and 1st September every year.

My second question is should my mother go forward with two different injections i.e. Zoledronic acid and Denosumab in a month' gap? Or else, skip the two injections to be given in 1st Septembe 2020 (Denosumab)and 1st October 2020 (Zolendronic acid) in order to do lower jaw denture implantation by a maxillofacial surgeon.

She takes Olimab - 60 mg/ml (product of India) as Denosumab injection and Stoplos One - 5 mg infustion (product of India) as Zolendronic acid injection.

    We are not professionals on the website, only patients like your mother. This is a complex question which can best be answered by a pharmacist, if the doctor doesn't know.

    I think it is unusual to be prescribed two bone medications simultaneously. As these drugs have very strong effects on the body I would be very concerned about her being put on both drugs at the same time. What is the rationale for that?
