Antibiotics such as quinolones (Floxin, Maxaquin
) and tetracyclines (Ala-Tet, Sumycin) should not be taken with dairy or calcium-containing foods or supplements, as the calcium diminishes the body's ability to absorb the antibiotic.
If your doctor chooses a fluoroquinolone drug (other drugs in this class besides Cipro include Avelox, Floxin, Levaquin, Maxaquin
, Noroxin, Penetrex, Tequin, and Zagam) consider cutting back on the intensity of your training and be sure to monitor and report any orthopedic pain to your doctor.
These include ciprofloxacin (Cipro), enoxacin (Penetrex), gatifloxacin (Tequin), levofloxacin (Levaquin), lomefloxacin (Maxaquin
), moxifloxacin (Avelox), norfloxacin (Noroxin), ofloxacin (Floxin), and sparfloxacin (Zagam).
