Possible Interaction: Cimetidine and Ferrous Sulfate

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

ferrous sulfate … cimetidine (300 mg) was associated with little reduction in serum cimetidine area under the curve (AUC) (mean versus mean, 20.8 versus 23.4 … concentration (Cmax) (mean versus mean, 5.1 versus 6.1 mumol/L; mean percentage difference, -16%; CI of percentage difference, -36% to 4%).

The higher ferrous sulfate dose completely inhibited cimetidine absorption (P<0.01), while the lower dose of ferrous sulfate caused a 63% reduction in cimetidine absorption (P<0.05).In vitro iron in its ferrous form rapidly oxidizes to the ferric form.
