DRUG INTERACTIONS

A number of interactions between vitamins and drugs have been reported. Consult appropriate references for additional specific vitamin-drug interactions. The following are examples of these types of interactions:

Clinical interactions affecting levels of co-administered drugs

Folic Acid

Phenytoin metabolism may be increased by folic acid. Folic acid may lower the serum concentration of phenytoin resulting in increased seizure activity.

Patient's response to methotrexate therapy may be decreased by folic acid.

Pyridoxine

The metabolism of levodopa may be increased and its efficacy may be decreased by pyridoxine.

Antibiotics

Antibiotic activity of erythromycin, kanamycin, streptomycin, doxycycline, and lincomycin is decreased by thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, niacinamide, and ascorbic acid. Bleomycin is inactivated in vitro by ascorbic acid and riboflavin.

Clinical interactions affecting vitamin levels

Hydralazine, Isoniazid

Pyridoxine requirements may be increased by concomitant administration of hydralazine or isoniazid.

Chloramphenicol

In patients with pernicious anemia, the hematologic response to vitamin B12 therapy may be inhibited by concomitant administration of chloramphenicol.

Phenytoin

Serum folic acid concentrations may be decreased by phenytoin and, therefore it should be avoided in pregnancy.
