Additional Medicines That React With Dynacin

Ergot Medications
Tetracycline medications such as Dynacin may increase the risk for ergotism, a potential side effect of ergot drugs. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Penicillins
Dynacin may decrease the effectiveness of penicillin antibiotics. The manufacturer of Dynacin advises against taking these drugs together. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential interaction before taking Dynacin with a penicillin antibiotic.
 
Quinapril
Quinapril may decrease the amount of Dynacin absorbed into the body, potentially decreasing its effectiveness. This interaction is thought to occur because quinapril tablets contain magnesium, which may bind to Dynacin in the digestive tract. It is a good idea to separate your doses of quinapril and Dynacin by at least two hours to avoid this interaction.
 
Retinoids
Combining Dynacin with some retinoid medications may increase the risk of a dangerous condition known as intracranial hypertension (increased pressure in the skull). Thus, certain retinoids should be avoided shortly before, during, or after Dynacin treatment. Talk to your healthcare provider about this interaction before taking Dynacin with a retinoid.
 
Sucralfate
Sucralfate can bind to Dynacin in the digestive tract, decreasing the amount of Dynacin absorbed into the body. This may make Dynacin less effective. It is best to take Dynacin at least two hours before sucralfate to help minimize this interaction.
 
Typhoid Vaccine
Antibiotics, including Dynacin, may decrease the effectiveness of typhoid vaccine. This interaction only occurs with the oral typhoid vaccine. The oral typhoid vaccine should be postponed for at least one day after stopping Dynacin.
