Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

calcium phosphate, tribasic strontium gluconate

Applies to: B-Nexa (calcium / folic acid / ginger / pyridoxine) and cyanocobalamin / folic acid / pyridoxine / strontium gluconate

Using calcium phosphate, tribasic together with strontium gluconate may decrease the effects of strontium gluconate. Strontium gluconate should be taken at least two hours before or two hours after calcium phosphate, tribasic, and preferably at bedtime. If your doctor does prescribe these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment or special test to safely use both medications. 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.

Therapeutic duplication warnings

Therapeutic duplication is the use of more than one medicine from the same drug category or therapeutic class to treat the same condition. This can be intentional in cases where drugs with similar actions are used together for demonstrated therapeutic benefit. It can also be unintentional in cases where a patient has been treated by more than one doctor, or had prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy, and can have potentially adverse consequences.
