Can I Take My Medications With Ciprofloxacin?
Vitamins With Aluminum, Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc, or Iron
Aluminum, magnesium, zinc, calcium, and iron can bind to ciprofloxacin in the digestive tract, preventing it from being absorbed into the bloodstream. You should take your ciprofloxacin dose at least two hours before or six hours after taking any vitamins that contain aluminum, magnesium, calcium, zinc, or iron.
There have been reports that combining ciprofloxacin with warfarin may increase the risk for bleeding. If you take these drugs together, your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely.
