DRUG INTERACTIONS: Aluminum and magnesium antacids should be used with caution with medications like atazanavir (Reyataz), ciprofloxacin (Cipro, Cipro XR, Proquin XR), dapsone, dasatinib (Sprycel), and tetracycline because antacids can slow down absorption of these medications.
PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies done on antacids to determine safe and effective use in pregnant women.
NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known whether antacids enter breast milk; therefore, it is best to be cautious before using it in nursing mothers.
