Interaction

Antacids containing calcium carbonate, aluminum hydroxide, phosphorus compounds, folates, calcium salts and tetracyclines decrease and/or delay iron absorption. The abuse of alcoholic beverages causes depletion of thiamine and pyridoxine. Pyridoxine contained in Anerex can accelerate the metabolism of levodopa and interact with isoniazid, cycloserine, hydralazine, chloramphenicol, and penicillin. The co-administration of oral anovulatory products and pyridoxine increases the excretion of vitamin B6. Biguanides reduce the absorption of vitamin B12.
