Drug Interactions
CeftibutenThe serum concentration of Ceftibuten can be decreased when it is combined with Zinc.
CephalexinZinc can cause a decrease in the absorption of Cephalexin resulting in a reduced serum concentration and potentially a decrease in efficacy.
DeferiproneThe serum concentration of Deferiprone can be decreased when it is combined with Zinc.
DolutegravirThe serum concentration of Dolutegravir can be decreased when it is combined with Zinc.
EltrombopagThe serum concentration of Eltrombopag can be decreased when it is combined with Zinc.
OxytetracyclineZinc can cause a decrease in the absorption of Oxytetracycline resulting in a reduced serum concentration and potentially a decrease in efficacy.
SparfloxacinThe serum concentration of Sparfloxacin can be decreased when it is combined with Zinc.
TriethylenetetramineThe serum concentration of Zinc can be decreased when it is combined with Triethylenetetramine.
