Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Okebo (doxycycline) and sucralfate
Sucralfate and doxycycline should not be taken orally at the same time. Products that contain aluminum such as sucralfate may interfere with the absorption of doxycycline into the bloodstream and reduce its effectiveness. To minimize the potential for interaction, you should take doxycycline at least 2 hours before sucralfate. 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
Applies to: sucralfate
When sucralfate is given with enteral (tube) feedings, the feeding tube may become clogged and/or sucralfate may not work as well. You could interrupt the feeding for 1 hour before and after the sucralfate dose. However, this still may not entirely avoid the interaction and may not always be feasible. 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.
