Interactions between your drugs
multivitamin with iron levoFLOXacin
Applies to: Uni-Daily Plus Iron (multivitamin with iron) and Levaquin (levofloxacin)
LevoFLOXacin and multivitamin with iron should not be taken orally at the same time. Products that contain magnesium, aluminum, calcium, iron, and/or other minerals may interfere with the absorption of levoFLOXacin into the bloodstream and reduce its effectiveness. If possible, it may be best to avoid taking multivitamin with iron while you are being treated with levoFLOXacin. Otherwise, levoFLOXacin should be taken 2 to 4 hours before or 4 to 6 hours after a multivitamin with iron dose, levoFLOXacin should be taken at least 2 hours before and not less than 6 hours after Suprep Bowel Prep (magnesium/potassium/sodium sulfates), or levoFLOXacin and multivitamin with iron should be taken as directed by your healthcare provider. Talk to your healthcare provider if you are unsure whether your medications contain something that could potentially interact or if you have questions on how to take this 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
Applies to: Levaquin (levofloxacin)
When levoFLOXacin as the oral solution is given with enteral (tube) feedings, levoFLOXacin may not work as well. You could interrupt the feeding for 1 hour before and 2 hours after the levoFLOXacin dose. However, this still may not entirely avoid the interaction and may not always be feasible. LevoFLOXacin oral tablets may be taken without regard to food. 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.
