Citranatal Drug Interactions

Citranatal Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Citranatal is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Bisphosphonate Medications
Some of the minerals in Citranatal 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. In the unlikely event that your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Citranatal and a bisphosphonate, be sure to take Citranatal at least two hours after your bisphosphonate dose.
 
This interaction is not an issue for bisphosphonates that are taken by injection.
 
Fluoroquinolone ("Quinolone") Antibiotics
Some of the minerals in Citranatal 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 Citranatal and a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before or six hours after taking your Citranatal dosage.
 
Medications That Thin the Blood
In theory, the docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in certain Citranatal products may increase the risk of bleeding if used in combination with medications that thin the blood (such as antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications). If your healthcare provider tells you to take Citranatal with a medication that thins the blood, be sure to watch for and report any unusual bleeding or bruising. It should be noted that some medications that are known to thin the blood are not recommended for use during pregnancy.
  
Tetracycline Antibiotics
Some of the minerals in Citranatal products may prevent tetracycline antibiotics from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Citranatal and a tetracycline antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before or six hours after taking your Citranatal dose. Keep in mind that tetracycline antibiotics are usually not recommended for pregnant women.
