I'm wondering if anyone has any information or experience in regards to the possible interactions between Nizoral 2% (Ketoconazole) Shampoo and Buprenorphine.

I am currently on 6mg a day (2mg in the morning, 2mg in the afternoon, 2mg at night). I hope to use the shampoo 2 or 3 times a week.

Ketoconazole is listed as possible interaction in the literature but it's based on a very small sample and it's based mostly off measurements as apposed to symptoms.

Can you ask your local pharmacist in case no one here knows the answer?

Nizoral is for topical use only and should not have any systemic effects or interactions with systemic medications. Unless you skin is horribly inflamed, and you plan on leaving the medication on it for an hour you will not have any problems. I am paraphrasing the conditions in which they did the animal studies and minimal amounts were found systemically.
Ketoconazole systemic has a number of drug/drug interactions and side effects that would not be found with the topical creams or shampoos.

Of course, if one of our worthy doctors comes along, you won't have to ask your pharmacist. Thanks, docm2!
