Interactions between your drugs
calcium carbonate hydroxychloroquine
Applies to: Calcium 600 D (calcium / vitamin d) and hydroxychloroquine
It is best not to take hydroxychloroquine and calcium carbonate at the same time. Products that contain magnesium, aluminum, or calcium such as antacids and some other gastrointestinal medications may interfere with the absorption of hydroxychloroquine and reduce its effectiveness. To minimize the risk of an interaction, you should try to separate the dosing of these medications by at least 4 hours. Contact your doctor if your symptoms worsen or your condition changes during treatment with these medications. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact. 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.

Calcium may be taken with food to increase absorption. Consider spacing calcium administration for at least 2 hours before or after consuming foods high in oxalic acid or phytic acid. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. 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.
