Ferrous fumarate vs Cefdinir

Interacting Drugs
Ferrous fumarate
vs
Cefdinir
Security Level
Moderate, Consider therapy modification
Mechanism
Cefdinir: Iron Salts may decrease the serum concentration of Cefdinir. Red-appearing, non-bloody stools may also develop due to the formation of an insoluble iron-cefdinir complex.
Management
Avoid concurrent cefdinir and oral iron when possible. Separating doses by several hours may minimize interaction. Iron-containing infant formulas do not appear to interact with cefdinir.
