  • weakening of the effect
    • Tetracyclines (certain antibiotics, e.g. doxycycline) or bisphosphonates (medicines for the treatment of osteoporosis): the absorption of both iron and tetracyclines or bisphosphonates is reduced.
    • Colestyramine or Ca 2+ -, Mg 2+ -, Al 3+ -containing medicines (e.g. antacids, calcium and magnesium salts for substitution): inhibit iron absorption.
    • Penicillamine, oral gold compounds, L-methyldopa, levodopa and L-thyroxine: are poorly absorbed when iron is administered at the same time.

    • There should be a gap of at least 2 hours between taking the drug and the above drugs.

    • if you receive repeated or chronic blood transfusions.
    • children under 6 years of age (weighing less than 20 kg).
