Gesticare Drug Interactions

Gesticare Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Gesticare is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Bisphosphonate Medications
The minerals in Gesticare may decrease the absorption of bisphosphonates into the body. However, bisphosphonates are typically 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 Gesticare and a bisphosphonate, be sure to take Gesticare at least two hours after your bisphosphonate dose.
 
Fluoroquinolone ("Quinolone") Antibiotics
The minerals in Gesticare 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 Gesticare and a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before or six hours after your Gesticare dose.
 
Tetracycline Antibiotics
The minerals in Gesticare may prevent tetracycline antibiotics from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Gesticare and a tetracycline antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before or six hours after your Gesticare dose. Keep in mind that tetracycline antibiotics are usually not recommended for pregnant women.
 
Underactive Thyroid Medications
The minerals in Gesticare may prevent thyroid medications from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take Gesticare and a thyroid medication together, be sure to separate these two medications by at least four hours.
