When taking ICaps, you should avoid dairy products, calcium supplements or antacids that contain calcium. Calcium can make it harder for your body to absorb the vitamins, iron and minerals in ICaps. Avoid using ICaps within one hour before or two hours after eating fish, meat, liver and whole grain or fortified breads or cereals. Also, avoid taking antibiotics for two hours before or after taking ICaps. This is especially important if you are taking an antibiotic, such as ciprofloxacin (Cipro), demeclocycline (Declomycin), doxycycline (Adoxa, Doryx, Oracea, Vibramycin), levofloxacin (Levaquin), lomefloxacin (Maxaquin), minocycline (Dynacin, Minocin, Solodyn, Vectrin), norfloxacin (Noroxin), ofloxacin (Floxin) or tetracycline (Brodspec, Panmycin, Sumycin, Tetracap).
