1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Trientine is used in wilson's disease (a rare copper storage disease) to chelate (bind) copper. Zinc is a trace element, dietary supplement with many alleged benefits that are unproved except in zinc deficiency.
There is no reported interaction between the two.

In brief: Yes

Both zinc and trientine are used in the treatment of wilson's disease.
As they work by different mechanisms in lowering copper, they can be used together. Wilson's is usually treated by a hepatogist, best at a university research center. Best of luck to you!
