Prenate DHA Drug Interactions

Prenate DHA Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Prenate DHA is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Bisphosphonate Medications
The minerals in Prenate DHA 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 Prenate DHA and a bisphosphonate, be sure to take Prenate DHA at least two hours after your bisphosphonate dose.
 
Fluoroquinolone ("Quinolone") Antibiotics
The minerals in Prenate DHA 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 Prenate DHA and a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, your Prenate DHA dose.
 
Medications That Thin the Blood
In theory, the omega-3 fatty acids in Prenate DHA may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with medications that thin the blood (such as antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications). If your healthcare provider tells you to take Prenate DHA with a medication that thins the blood, be sure to watch for and report any unusual bleeding or bruising.
  
Tetracycline Antibiotics
The minerals in Prenate DHA may prevent tetracycline antibiotics from being absorbed into the body. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take both Prenate DHA and a tetracycline antibiotic, be sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, your Prenate DHA dose. Keep in mind that tetracycline antibiotics are usually not recommended for pregnant women.
