Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

ergocalciferol magnesium oxide

Applies to: Calcium 600 D (calcium / vitamin d) and magnesium oxide

Using ergocalciferol together with magnesium oxide can lead to elevated magnesium blood levels, particularly in individuals with reduced kidney function. Symptoms of high magnesium levels may include nausea, vomiting, flushing, drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, muscle weakness, reduced reflexes, low blood pressure, slow heart rate, and impaired breathing. You should seek medical attention if you experience these symptoms. If you are on dialysis and treated with ergocalciferol or other vitamin D medications, you should generally avoid taking products that contain magnesium without first talking to your doctor, as high levels of magnesium over time can lead to bone problems. 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

Moderate

calcium carbonate food

Applies to: Calcium 600 D (calcium / vitamin d)

Calcium absorption may be increased by taking it with food. However, foods high in oxalic acid (spinach or rhubarb), or phytic acid (bran and whole grains) may decrease calcium absorption. 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.
