Ranitidine Effect On Calcium Absorption
Does Zantac (ranitidine) prevent absorption of other meds? How long should I wait to take other meds after taking zantac (ranitidine)?
Some meds: Some medications like certain antibiotics and thyroid medications. You should take it at least 6 hr appart.
Can I take a 150mg ranitidine and a 2mg Xanax (alprazolam) together safely and will the ranitidine affect the absorption of the xanax (alprazolam)? Thank You
No interactions: Or differences in absorption with ranitidine and alprazolam. You don't list Xanax on your medications, and 2 mg is a hefty dose of this very potent drug. This would be a dose that someone would have been built up to if lower doses didn't work. The starting dose of Xanax should be about 0.5 mg if you have not been on it before. If it is prescribed for you, your doctor/pharmacist can advise you.
Chronic reflux. Afraid that Zantac (ranitidine) will reduce effect of micronor. But also worried that acid reflux will effect absorption of pill. Any suggestions?
I have really bad heartburn and my roads are flooded. I have tums (calcium carbonate) and expired ranitidine. Which will help the heartburn most effectively and immediate?
Use both: Take both! The out of date ranitidine may not have full potency so if you're not feeling better in an hour, take a second one.
Pressure in chest that is relieved by burping and back shoulder and chest (around breast) pain on right upper side. Otc ranitidine and Tums (calcium carbonate) helps sum?
It may: Interfere with the "sticking" on the inflammed lining of your stomach...ACID causes the inflammation so in a way you are taking two medicines with opposite mechanisms of action! Speak with your PCP (I assume you are taking these medications under medical supervision...if not get some! Hope this helps Dr Z
Can I take Zantac with Synthoid in the morning? Woukd taking Zantac at the same time as I take Synthroid (thyroxine) affect synthroid's absorption or not?
See below: Taking milk with coffee is thought to reduce some of the antioxidant benefits of coffee. Try using almond milk with it instead.
M on ppis 40 mg two times also taking calcium tablets will ppis interfare with calcium absorption?
Yes: Inhibits acid production hence reduces absorption of calcuim carbonate. Use of calcium citrate may improve absorption
Foods: Phytic acid and oxalic acid, found naturally in some plants, bind to calcium and can inhibit its absorption. Foods with high levels of oxalic acid include spinach, collard greens, sweet potatoes, rhubarb, and beans. Eating spinach and milk together reduces calcium absorption. Foods high in phytic acid include whole-grain products and wheat bran, beans, seeds, nuts, and soy isolates.
As whole grain cotain phayte acid cause decrease calcium absorption so does it cause osteomalcia?
Yes.: They can significantly lower the amount of thyroid hormone that gets absorbed. Because calcium is a positively charged ion, it can bind to any negatively charged chemical, including levothyroxine. Spacing the thyroid hormone at least 2 hours from calcium (including antacids such as tums), iron, multi-vitamins, and certain other meds can help keep thyroid blood levels stable.
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 bound 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.
