    Other medicines may affect THE REAL THING TRI-MAG CAPSULES:
    • Potassium-sparing diuretics and boron might increase your magnesium levels.
    • High doses of calcium or zinc may decrease your magnesium levels.
    • Aminoglycoside antibiotics and amphotericin B can cause reduced kidney function, which causes increased loss of electrolytes such as magnesium.
    • Cetuximab, corticosteroids, digoxin, some diuretics, panitumumab, pentamidine, tacrolimus, cyclosporine and Foscarnet may cause increased loss of magnesium.
    • Oestrogens reduce serum levels of magnesium by increasing its uptake into body tissues.
    • Proton pump inhibitors can cause low blood levels of magnesium.
    • Penicillamine can reduce absorption of magnesium.
    • High doses of sodium phosphates deplete your magnesium
    • Calcipotriene taken with vitamin D increases the risk of high calcium levels.
    • Orlistat decreases the absorption and blood levels of vitamin D. *Take these at least 2 hours apart.
    THE REAL THING TRI-MAG CAPSULES may affect other medicines:
    • Magnesium can decrease the absorption of bisphosphonates and tetracyclines; separate doses by at least 2 hours.
    • Magnesium can form insoluble complexes with quinolones and decrease their absorption; take quinolones at least 2 hours before, or 4-6 hours after magnesium.
    • Magnesium can increase the absorption of sulfonylureas, thereby increasing their effects and side effects.
    • Vitamin D can increase magnesium absorption.
    • Vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium in the small intestine. Hypercalcaemia induced by high-doses vitamin D can reduce the therapeutic effects of verapamil for arrhythmia.
    • There is an increased risk of hypercalcaemia if vitamin D is given with thiazide diuretics, calcium or phosphate. Monitor your calcium intake.

    Do not take if you:

    • Allergic or hypersensitive to magnesium (bis)glycinate, magnesium citrate, magnesium malate, vitamin D3 or any of the other ingredients
    • Have hypercalcaemia (abnormally high level of circulating calcium in the blood).
