What can you not take with minocycline?
Considering this, what drugs interact with minocycline?
Major drug interactions with minocycline include:
- Penicillin antibiotics like ampicillin, Bicillin L-A or Bicillin C-R (penicillin G), and penicillin VK.
- Nerve-blocking drugs like atracurium, Nimbex (cisatracurium), rocuronium, and vecuronium.
- Pepto-Bismol (bismuth subsalicylate)
Likewise, why can't you lay down after taking minocycline? Take the entire course, even if your skin is looking better. Don't lie down immediately after taking minocycline. Otherwise, it can irritate the esophagus, which is really painful.
Thereof, what can I eat with minocycline?
Some examples include antacids, didanosine solution, quinapril, vitamins/minerals, dairy products (such as milk, yogurt), and calcium-enriched juice. These products bind with minocycline, preventing your body from fully absorbing the drug.
Can you eat dairy while taking minocycline?
You may take minocycline with food or milk if stomach upset occurs, unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Take this medication 2-3 hours before or after taking any medications containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium. They bind with minocycline preventing its full absorption.
