It depends on what you mean by "homeopathic drug." if it's truly a homeopathic remedy, and has been prescribed after a comprehensive homeopathic evaluation, it will not have any interaction with pharmaceutical drugs. However, some people think herbal medications (which can interact with pharmaceuticals) are the same as homeopathic medicines. They aren't, and i don't know which "drug" you mean.
