Fosamax Plus D Drug Interactions

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Both NSAIDs and Fosamax Plus D can be irritating to the stomach. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking an NSAID if you are taking Fosamax Plus D. Of course, no other medications (including NSAIDs) should be taken within 30 minutes of taking Fosamax Plus D.
 
Orlistat
Orlistat can decrease the absorption of vitamin D (one of the components of Fosamax Plus D) from the digestive tract, making Fosamax Plus D less effective. Your healthcare provider may recommend that you take additional vitamin D to prevent this drug interaction from occurring.
 
Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications can cause your body to break down vitamin D (one of the components of Fosamax Plus D) more quickly than usual. Depending on your individual situation, your healthcare provider may recommend that you take additional vitamin D.
 
Teriparatide
In studies, combining teriparatide with medications like Fosamax Plus D seemed to make teriparatide less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Thiazide Diuretics
Thiazide diuretics can cause your body to break down vitamin D (one of the components of Fosamax Plus D) more quickly than usual. Your healthcare provider may recommend that you take additional vitamin D to prevent this drug interaction from occurring.
