1 interaction was found for the drugs you selected.

TETRACYCLINE in Tetracycline Oral Suspension may interact with SODIUM BICARBONATE in Baking Soda
Sodium bicarbonate may decrease the absorption of tetracycline by the body and it may also cause tetracycline to be removed from the body at a faster rate than normal. Both of these effects mean that potentially less tetracycline would be available for the body to use. If blood levels of tetracycline become too low, it could be less effective at fighting an infection. If sodium bicarbonate and tetracycline must used together, they should be separated by as much time as possible -- at least 3 to 4 hours. If tetracycline levels become too low, a different type of antacid may need to be used or the dose of tetracycline may have to be adjusted. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.

This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity.
