When can Nitrofurantoin be taken after taking Pyridoxine shots?

nitrofurantoin macrocrystal oral will decrease the level or effect of pyridoxine inj by suppressing bacteria in the stomach that may assist with drug absorption. This interaction may occur when both drugs are taken by mouth. what if i take them 3-4 hours apart?

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The interaction is minor and only applies if the oral form of BOTH drugs is used. This means that it would not apply here since you are using an injection of pyridoxine.

If there is a minimal reaction, it would be reduced by spacing.

I hope this helps
