ciprofloxacin lanthanum carbonate

Applies to: ciprofloxacin and lanthanum carbonate

Lanthanum carbonate and ciprofloxacin should not be taken orally at the same time. These medications may interfere with each other's absorption into the bloodstream, which may reduce the effects of both medications. To minimize the potential for interaction, avoid taking ciprofloxacin within 2 hours of taking lanthanum carbonate. Talk to a healthcare professional if you have questions on how to take these or other medications you are prescribed. 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

ciprofloxacin food

Applies to: ciprofloxacin

Do not take ciprofloxacin with dairy products such as milk or yogurt, or with calcium-fortified foods (e.G., cereal, juice). You may eat or drink dairy products or calcium-fortified foods with a regular meal, but do not use them alone when taking ciprofloxacin. They could make the medication less effective. When ciprofloxacin tablets are given with enteral (tube) feedings, ciprofloxacin may not work as well. You could interrupt the feeding for 1 hour before and 2 hours after the ciprofloxacin dose, or your doctor may decide to switch to a different treatment. Ciprofloxacin oral suspension should not be given via nasogastric tubes or feeding tubes. 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.
