  • When used with other medicines
    • Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking/using or have recently taken/used other medicines, even if they are non-prescription medicines.
    • Zinc decreases the absorption of antibiotics such as tetracyclines (e.g. doxycycline), ofloxacin or other quinolones (e.g. ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin). Because of the risk of reduced effectiveness against bacterial infections, an interval of at least 4 hours should be observed between the intake of zinc and tetracyclines or quinolones.
    • D-penicillamine, dimercaptopropane sulfonic acid (DMPS), dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA), or ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) may decrease zinc absorption or increase excretion.
    • Zinc absorption can be reduced if zinc and phosphates, iron, copper and calcium salts are given at the same time.
    • Zinc preparations can reduce the absorption and storage of iron when taken at the same time as iron.
    • Zinc can affect the absorption of copper.
