Interactions between your drugs
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.
Drug and food interactions
strontium gluconate food
Applies to: cyanocobalamin / folic acid / pyridoxine / strontium gluconate
Strontium gluconate should be taken on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal and preferably at bedtime unless otherwise directed by your doctor. You may experience reduced absorption of strontium gluconate in the presence of food or milk. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication.
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.
The recommended maximum number of medicines in the 'folates' category to be taken concurrently is usually one. Your list includes two medicines belonging to the 'folates' category:
- B-Nexa (calcium/folic acid/ginger/pyridoxine)
- cyanocobalamin/folic acid/pyridoxine/strontium gluconate
Note: The benefits of taking this combination of medicines may outweigh any risks associated with therapeutic duplication. This information does not take the place of talking to your doctor. Always check with your healthcare provider to determine if any adjustments to your medications are needed.
