Expert advice for Zinc

  • Do not take Zinc on an empty stomach to avoid possible minor stomach upset.
  • Let your doctor know if you are taking any other medications, like antihypertensives, antibiotics, or medicines for heart disease or bone disorders.
  • Avoid taking antacids 2 hours before or after taking Zinc, as they make it harder for your body to absorb this medicine.
  • Do not take any iron supplements along with this medicine because iron may interfere with zinc absorption.
