Interactions between your drugs


omeprazole ferrous sulfate

Applies to: omeprazole and Slow Release Iron (ferrous sulfate)

If you are iron-deficient or have anemia, you should talk to your doctor before using ferrous sulfate together with omeprazole. By reducing stomach acid, omeprazole may reduce the absorption of iron and make ferrous sulfate 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 ferrous sulfate. 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.
