Read the Foltx (folacin, cyanocobalamin & pyridoxine) Side Effects Center for a complete guide to possible side effects

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Pyridoxine supplements should not be given to patients receiving the drug levodopa, because the action of levodopa is antagonized by pyridoxine. However, pyridoxine may be used concurrently in patients receiving a preparation containing both carbidopa and levodopa. Concurrent use of phenytoin and folacin (folic acid) may result in decreased phenytoin effectiveness.
