Drug Interactions
Drugs which reduce gastric acidity may result in a lower bioavailability of Zinnat compared with that of the fasting state and tend to cancel the effect of enhanced absorption after food.
In common with other antibiotics, Zinnat may affect the gut flora, leading to lower oestrogen reabsorption and reduced efficacy of combined oral contraceptives.
As a false-negative result may occur in the ferricyanide test, it is recommended that either the glucose oxidase or hexokinase methods are used to determine blood/plasma glucose levels in patients receiving Zinnat.
This antibiotic does not interfere in the alkaline picrate assay for creatinine.
