Cipro Calcium Iron Zinc
I'm taking Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and can't have any calcium, iron or zinc. I need to take it with food or it makes me sick. Can u recommend a breakfast food?
Was told that CIPRofloxacin should not be taken with iron/calcium products. Does this only apply to supplements or whole foods too (e.g. veg/meat)?
No worries: This is a theoretical concern only; the actual effect of iron or calcium on ciprofloxacin absorption is small. You should avoid taking a large dose of antacid (or iron pills) simultaneously with cipro. Otherwise don't worry about it. Certainly the calcium or iron in foods has no signficant effect. ...Read more

Will taking unisom natural nights sleep aid (contains calcium, vitamin b, and melatonin) 4 hours after taking cipro (ciprofloxacin), (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin) make the cipro (ciprofloxacin) less effective?
What to do if I am taking cipro (ciprofloxacin) 500mg and it says not to take antacids, iron or vitamins, do you think its okay to take nght time sleep aid with this medication?
Cipro (ciprofloxacin) & sleep aid?: Well, it says no antacids, iron, or vitamins. While you don't specify which sleep aid you take, it's unlikely to contain antacids, iron, or vitamins. To be certain, however, check the label of your sleep aid & obtain the name or active ingredient & ring ur pharmacist and/or MD. Always tell each of ur prescribers all meds ur taking, including over the counter meds/supplements for proper counsel! :) ...Read more
My mum 92 was given ciprofloxacin with calcium tablets during her hospitalization. What is the likely reaction?
Save your money: Unbelievable how many new miracle supplements are appearing on the market and nutrex lipo-6 black is another "new kid on the block". This so-called "fat burner" is associated with no credible evidence of benefit, and is yet another potential scam, with possible bad adverse events. Talk to your doctor, as you are clearly in search of some solution. Just do it safely. ...Read more

What is most likely to occur when a calcium supplement and an iron supplement are taken simultaneously?
Decrease absorption: In low dose, nothing probably will happen. Calcium and iron are taken together in a multivitamin all the time. At higher dose, you might get GI upset. Regarding efficacy, you get less iron absorption if taken with calcium. It is recommended to take iron 2 hr before or 4 hr after calcium supplementation. ...Read more

If I'm taking biotin, iron, calcium & acidillophus vitamins at the same time, is it effective & are there certain times to take each?
OK together but...: Minerals are best absorbed on an empty stomach as adequate stomach acid helps & our stomachs have the most acid when empty. However, stomach acid kills acidophilus, so it's far better to take it after a meal (for some strange reason many probiotic labels say take on empty stomach- they're wrong!). Biotin can be taken any time. Taking vit c with iron improves absorption. Consider vit. D in winter. ...Read more
My hb is 11.9 and I had breathing trouble and leg pain. Aftr taking iron tab and calcium tonic for 2 years, still hb is 11.9.why hb didn't increase?
Normal Hb for a woman is 12.0, so 11.9 is within the measuring error and you should not be concerned about it. You may wish to keep taking iron as you lose some each month with your periods.

When I take 1 tablet of osteocare daily which is calcium, magnesium and zinc I urine alot? What that means
For 55+ female, does high VitD & calcium dosage directly or indirectly intervene with Iron absorption from food?
Calcium and iron: Calcium supplements can interfere with iron absorption from the diet. Normally, this is insignificant and usually does not cause iron deficiency. If someone is found to be iron deficient, the first step is to rule out loss of iron in the form of obscure bleeding from the digestive tract. It is vitally important to rule this out first. Good luck. ...Read more
Suggest me some multivitamins tablet that contain good amount of zinc, calcium, magnesium. And should be safe to use?
Doctors and vitamins:
I hope you understand that the various vitamin products on the market are something that most physicians would not have any expertise in. There are vitamin standards set by the government and daily recommended doses. These are all well displayed on the vitamin products available.
I tell my patients to choose the vitamin of their choice. If they are males the only other caution is that no iron! ...Read more
I have Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc altogether in one pill. It says to take 1 to 3 caplets daily with a meal. Can I take all three at once, instead?
Med Directions: If it says 1-3 daily, then it means all at once. If it were to say take 1 tablet three times a day then it would mean exactly that. If it said to take one tablet up to three times a day then it would be how your are interpreting the directions. According to what you said the correct way is the first, 1-3 tablets all at once, one time a day. ...Read more
