Stuart Prenatal Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Stuart Prenatal is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Bisphosphonate Medications
The minerals in Stuart Prenatal may prevent bisphosphonates from being absorbed 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 Stuart Prenatal and a bisphosphonate, be sure to take Stuart Prenatal at least two hours after your bisphosphonate dose.
 
Fluoroquinolone ("Quinolone") Antibiotics
Stuart Prenatal contains minerals, which may prevent fluoroquinolone antibiotics from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Stuart Prenatal and a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, taking your Stuart Prenatal dose.
 
Medications That Thin the Blood
Theoretically, the docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in Stuart Prenatal + DHA may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with medications that thin the blood (such as antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications). In many cases, it is okay to take these medicines together, as long as you watch for and report any signs of unusual bleeding or bruising. However, some medicines that thin the blood are not recommended for pregnant women, so check with your healthcare provider before taking one of these medications.
  
Tetracycline Antibiotics
The minerals in Stuart Prenatal may prevent tetracycline antibiotics from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Stuart Prenatal and a tetracycline antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, taking your Stuart Prenatal dose. Keep in mind that tetracycline antibiotics are usually not recommended for pregnant women.
