DRUG INTERACTIONS

Drug/Laboratory Test Interactions

The oxalate method of determining serum calcium tends to give low readings in the presence of edetate disodium; modification of this method, as by acidifying the sample or use of a different method may be required for accuracy. The least interference will be noted immediately before a subsequent dose is administered.

Additives may be incompatible with the reconstituted (diluted) solution required for intravenous infusion. Consult with pharmacist, if available. When introducing additives, use aseptic technique, mix thoroughly and do not store.
