It would be nice to have a generic folder here.

Does anybody know why you aren't supposed to take tetracyclene with milk?

Administration with food, particularly dairy products, significantly reduces tetracycline absorption. The calcium content of these foods forms nonabsorbable chelates with tetracycline. MANAGEMENT: Tetracycline should be administered one hour before or two hours after meals.

I hope this helps.

hmmmm, good question.

the only thing I could find was that it binds with calcium in the intestine.

I assume that means that it makes it less potent and effective.

Thanks, gang!

In the 60s, officialdom destroyed its credibility by equating marijuana with heroin and cocaine. Nowadays they are doing the same thing by issuing extremely CYA warnings without explanation on most prescription drugs. A degree of seriousness really needs to be specified, along with a reason.
