Interactions between your drugs
iron polysaccharide pantoprazole
Applies to: iron polysaccharide and Protonix (pantoprazole)
If you are iron-deficient or have anemia, you should talk to your doctor before using iron polysaccharide together with pantoprazole. By reducing stomach acid, pantoprazole may reduce the absorption of iron and make iron polysaccharide less effective in treating your condition. Your doctor or pharmacist may be able to offer suggestions on safer alternatives if you require treatment for stomach acid or ulcer while you are being treated with iron polysaccharide. 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.
