    antibiotics with b5?

    hi, i'm on minocycline (100 mg 2X day) and was wondering if it would be a bad idea to start taking B5 also. i already take vitamins (A,B-complex,C,D,E,and zinc) and don't know if there could be adverse effects from taking B5 and antibiotics at the same time, i wouldn't want to counteract anything i'm taking.

    There has been some concern that taking vitamin supplements at the same time as an antibiotic will interfere with the absorption of the antibiotic. I have no concrete evidence to prove or disprove this statement...but I do know that there are certain supplements that you should not take with minocycline (i.e. calcium, iron, and I believe zinc...I also found multivitamin mentioned on an interactions page somewhere on the internet a long time ago. So if you want to be extra safe, allow a 2 hour block of time (before and after)between when you take the antibiotic and when you take other supplements, including B-5... hope this helped <IMG SRC="">
