Famotidine, calcium carbonate, and magnesium hydroxide vs Mesalamine

Interacting Drugs
Famotidine, calcium carbonate, and magnesium hydroxide
vs
Mesalamine
Security Level
Moderate, Consider therapy modification
Mechanism
Mesalamine: H2-Antagonists may diminish the therapeutic effect of Mesalamine. Histamine H2-Antagonist-mediated increases in gastrointestinal pH may cause the premature release of mesalamine from specific sustained-release mesalamine products.
Management
Consider avoiding concurrent administration of high-dose histamine H2-receptor antagonists with sustained-release mesalamine products.

Famotidine, calcium carbonate, and magnesium hydroxide vs Mesalamine

Interacting Drugs
Famotidine, calcium carbonate, and magnesium hydroxide
vs
Mesalamine
Security Level
Moderate, Consider therapy modification
Mechanism
Mesalamine: Antacids may diminish the therapeutic effect of Mesalamine. Antacid-mediated increases in gastrointestinal pH may cause the premature release of mesalamine from specific sustained-release mesalamine products.
Management
Avoid concurrent administration of antacids with sustained-release mesalamine products. Separating antacid and mesalamine administration, and/or using lower antacid doses may be adequate means of avoiding this interaction.
