Daily Life Interactions for Zinc Sulfate 220mg Tablet

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Moderate Lifestyle Interaction
Food and Zinc Sulfate 220mg Tablet(Zinc Sulfate)
Food and Zinc(Zinc Sulfate)
Taking oral Zinc Salts (dietary supplements or medicines like Galzin, Zinc Sulfate, etc.) at the same time as food or beverages, other than water, can reduce the amount of zinc absorbed. Breads, vegetables, fruits, eggs, and beverages like milk or coffee are all known to decrease zinc supplement absorption. If you do take a Zinc supplement, it is best to take it at least 1 hour before or 1 hour after you have taken any feeding, meal, or beverage.
Minor Lifestyle Interaction
Alcohol and Zinc Sulfate 220mg Tablet(Zinc Sulfate)
Alcohol and Zinc(Zinc Sulfate)
If you regularly drink alcohol-containing drinks, you may have a lack of certain minerals including Zinc. Some patients may need zinc supplements if they do not have adequate dietary intake. Discuss if supplements are appropriate for you with your health care provider.
Minor Lifestyle Interaction
Enteral Feedings and Zinc Sulfate 220mg Tablet(Zinc Sulfate)
Enteral Feedings and Zinc(Zinc Sulfate)
If you need to use Enteral feedings (examples: Ensure, Jevity and others) as your sole nutritional dietary intake for long periods of time, you may be at risk for Zinc deficiency, as the feeding may impair the absorption of zinc. This interaction is not a concern if you simply use these products as supplements to a normal diet; true zinc deficiency is relatively rare. If you take Enteral Feedings as your only diet for long periods of time, you may need to discuss the use of additional mineral supplements with your prescriber. If you do take a Zinc supplement, it is best to take it at least 1 hour before or 1 hour after you have taken any feeding, meal, or beverage.
