You shouldn’t take complementary medicines that have iron or zinc, indigestion remedies with magnesium or aluminium in them as they can stop Lymecycline from working properly.
Also, cholestyramine (for cholesterol), sucralfate (for ulcers) and quinapril (for high blood pressure) may decrease the absorption of Lymecycline. Anti-epilepsy medication such as carbamazepine and phenytoin may accelerate the decomposition of Lymecycline and so it won’t be as effective. These products should not be taken within two hours before or after taking Lymecycline.
A combination of lymecycline with lithium may cause an increase in serum lithium levels.
Concomitant use of oral retinoids (these include some other medicines used to treat acne) or doses of more than 10 000 IU/day of vitamin A should be avoided. An increase in the effects of medicines used to thin your blood may occur with tetracyclines with an increased risk of haemorrhage. Additional use of diuretics should be avoided.
