Atelvia Drug Interactions

Atelvia Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Atelvia is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Antacids
The delayed-release coating on Atelvia tablets is designed to stay intact in an acidic environment, like the stomach, and to dissolve in a less acidic environment, like the small intestine. By decreasing the acidity of the stomach, antacids could cause Atelvia tablets to dissolve too quickly -- in the stomach, instead of the intestines -- perhaps decreasing the absorption of the drug. Make sure to take any antacids at least 30 minutes after Atelvia, if not longer.
 
Aspirin
Both aspirin and Atelvia can be irritating to the stomach. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these products together.
 
Calcium Products
Calcium binds to Atelvia in the stomach, preventing it from being absorbed in the body and making it less effective. While it is usually important for people with osteoporosis to take calcium, keep in mind that you must wait at least 30 minutes after taking Atelvia before taking a dose of calcium.
 
H2 Blockers
The delayed-release coating on Atelvia tablets is designed to stay intact in an acidic environment, like the stomach, and to dissolve in a less acidic environment, like the small intestine. By decreasing the acidity of the stomach, H2 blockers could cause Atelvia tablets to dissolve too quickly -- in the stomach, instead of the intestines -- perhaps decreasing the absorption of the drug. If you take Atelvia, check with your healthcare provider before taking an H2 blocker.
 
Iron Supplements
Iron binds to Atelvia in the stomach, preventing it from being absorbed in the body and making it less effective. Be sure to wait at least 30 minutes after taking Atelvia before taking an iron supplement.
