Interactions

with other drugs

Adsorbents and antacids

  • Containing cations (Mg, Al) bind to fluoroquinolones and prevent their absorption from the GIT, dramatically decreasing bioavailability.

Sucralfate and zinc salts

  • May inhibit the absorption of fluoroquinolones, separate doses of these drugs by at least 6 hours.

Theophylline

  • Fluoroquinolones increase plasma theophilline concentrations.

Probenecid

  • Blocks the tubular secretion of fluoroquinolones and may increase their blood level and half-life.
