Citracal Prenatal + DHA Drug Interactions

Citracal Prenatal + DHA Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Citracal Prenatal + DHA is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aspirin (Bayer and Many Others)
Theoretically, the docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in Citracal Prenatal + DHA products may increase the risk of bleeding when combined with aspirin. However, most pregnant women should avoid aspirin anyway. One low-dose aspirin (81 mg) a day, which is sometimes recommended for certain conditions related to pregnancy, should probably not cause any problems.
 
Bisphosphonate Medications
Some of the minerals in Citracal Prenatal + DHA products may decrease the absorption of bisphosphonates into the body. However, bisphosphonates are usually not recommended for pregnant women, so this is not usually a problem. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Citracal Prenatal + DHA and a bisphosphonate, be sure to take Citracal Prenatal + DHA at least two hours after your bisphosphonate dose.
 
Fluoroquinolone ("Quinolone") Antibiotics
Some of the minerals in Citracal Prenatal + DHA products may prevent fluoroquinolone antibiotics from being absorbed into the body as well as they normally should. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Citracal Prenatal + DHA and a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, taking your Citracal Prenatal + DHA dose.
 
Tetracycline Antibiotics
Some of the minerals in Citracal Prenatal + DHA products may prevent tetracycline antibiotics from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Citracal Prenatal + DHA and a tetracycline antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, taking your Citracal Prenatal + DHA dose. Keep in mind that tetracycline antibiotics are usually not recommended for pregnant women.
