Does zinc sulfate mix well with other drugs?

Yes, taking zinc sulfate can be risky when mixed with other drugs, including blood-thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin), methyltestosterone (Android, Methitest, Oreton), penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen), risedronate (Actonel), tetracycline antibiotics such as demeclocycline (Declomycin), doxycycline (Adoxa, Doryx, Oracea, Vibramycin), minocycline (Dynacin, Minocin, Solodyn, Vectrin) or tetracycline (Brodspec, Panmycin, Sumycin, Tetracap), and antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin (Cipro), ofloxacin (Floxin), norfloxacin (Noroxin) and levofloxacin (Levaquin) among others. Zinc sulfate can block the absorption of some antibiotics, so ask your pharmacist how long you should wait to take your prescriptions between doses.
