Vitamin or mineral supplements that contain calcium, iron, or zinc.
ciprofloxacin ↔ multivitamins with minerals
Moderate Drug Interaction
Ciprofloxacin and multivitamin with minerals should not be taken orally at the same time. Products that contain magnesium, aluminum, calcium, iron, and/or other minerals may interfere with the absorption of ciprofloxacin and reduce its effectiveness. If possible, it may be best to avoid taking multivitamin with minerals while your are being treated with ciprofloxacin. Otherwise, you should take ciprofloxacin either 2 to 4 hours before or 4 to 6 hours after the multivitamin with minerals dose. Contact your doctor if your condition worsens. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
