Prussian blue ↔ food

Moderate Food Interaction

Prussian blue should be taken with food or just after eating. Food increases the effectiveness of Prussian blue in treating cesium and thallium poisoning by stimulating bile secretion. Prussian blue binds cesium and thallium isotopes when they are excreted in the bile. If you are unable to swallow the capsules, the content of the capsules may be mixed with bland food or liquids and consumed. This may result in blue discoloration of the mouth and teeth. Prussian blue may also bind other medications that you take by mouth. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use these medications together. Contact your doctor if your condition changes. 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.
