  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Ascorbic acid is often given in addition to desferrioxamine to patients with iron overload to achieve better iron excretion. However, early on in treatment when there is excess tissue iron there is some evidence that ascorbic acid may worsen the iron toxicity, particularly to the heart. Thus, ascorbic acid should not be given for the first month after starting desferrioxamine treatment. The antioxidant effect of ascorbic acid might reverse the oxidation of oestrogens, but that these results did not support the general use of ascorbic acid and adjuvant to HRT. Giving ascorbic acid, for vitamin C deficiency, to a patient receiving fluphenazine for bipolar disorder was associated with a fall in serum concentrations of fluphenazine and a deterioration of behavior. Ascorbic acid reducing the activity of warfarin.,
