►  Drug Interaction : Drug interaction of Tribasic Calcium Phosphate is with Thiazide Diuretics , , Corticosteroid , , , , TETRACYCLINES ,  Vitamin D, digitalis,
Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 1822   Edition : 37,


  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Hypercalcaemia has occurred when calcium salts are given with thiazide diuretics or vitamin D. Vitamin D increases the gastrointestinal absorption of calcium and thiazide diuretics decrease its urinary excretion. Bran decreases the gastrointestinal absorption of calcium, and may therefore decrease the efficacy of calcium supplements. Corticosteroids also reduce calcium absorption. Calcium enhances the effects of digitalis glycosides on the heart and may precipitate digitalis intoxication; parenteral calcium therapy is best avoided in patients receiving cardiac glycosides. Calcium salts reduce the absorption of a number of other drugs such as bisphosphonates, fluoride, some fluoroquinolones, and tetracyclines; doses should be separated by at least 3 hours.,

►  Contraindication : renal impairment, Diseases associated with hypercalcaemia such as sarcoidosis and some malignancies, be avoided in patients with calcium renal calculi, or a history of renal calculi.,
