ANTACIDS AND IRON

The absorption of iron and the expected haematological response can be reduced by the concurrent use of antacids (sodium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate, alum- inium/magnesium hydroxide, magnesium trisilicate).
Separate the administration of iron preparations and antacids as much as possible to avoid admixture in the gut. Note that separating the dosing by 2 to 3 hours minimises other absorption interactions with antacids.
