TheraNatal Drug Interactions

TheraNatal Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when TheraNatal is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Bisphosphonate Medications
The minerals in TheraNatal may bind to bisphosphonates in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and decrease the amount of bisphosphonate absorbed into the body. However, bisphosphonates are generally not recommended for pregnant women, so this is usually not a problem. If your healthcare provider recommends that you take TheraNatal and a bisphosphonate, make sure to take your vitamin at least two hours after your bisphosphonate dose.
 
Fluoroquinolone ("Quinolone") Antibiotics
The minerals in TheraNatal can bind to fluoroquinolone antibiotics and reduce the amount of antibiotic absorbed into the body. If you take these medicines together, make sure to take the antibiotic at least two hours before, or six hours after, your TheraNatal dose.
 
Medications That Thin the Blood
In theory, the omega-3 fatty acid (docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA) in TheraNatal Complete and TheraNatal Lactation Support may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with medications that thin the blood, such as antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications. Many medications that thin the blood are not recommended for use in pregnant women anyway. However, if these medicines are taken together, it is a good idea to watch for and report any unusual bleeding or bruising.
 
Orlistat
Some of the vitamins in TheraNatal will not be adequately absorbed into the body if you take Orlistat. This interaction is not likely to be a concern, however, as Orlistat is a weight loss medication. Weight loss medicines are generally not recommended for use during pregnancy.
