M.V.I. PEDIATRIC Lifestyle Interactions

Pediatric Multivitamin, Powder for Solution for Injection

Food

· Severity: Mild

· Notes for Consumers: Biotin may not work as well if you consume raw egg whites while taking this medication. If you notice unusual thinning of your hair or brittle nails, or if you think Biotin is not working as well for you, contact your prescriber.

· Notes for Professionals: Dietary avidin, a glycoprotein in raw egg whites (food), binds tightly to dietary biotin and prevents its absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. Cooking denatures the avidin, disabling it from interfering with biotin absorption.

Alcohol

· Severity: Moderate

· Notes for Professionals: Alcohol-containing beverages or hot beverages/foods can exacerbate cutaneous vasodilation caused by niacin and should be avoided around the time of niacin ingestion.

Pediatric Multivitamin, Powder for Solution for Injection

Food

· Severity: Mild

· Notes for Consumers: Food interactions with Cyanocobalamin are for the most part insignificant. However, if you use the intranasal Cyanocobalamin supplements (Nascobal), you should avoid drinking hot liquids or eating very hot foods within 1 hour before or after using the nasal spray or gel. Hot foods/liquids can make the nose runny, which can limit the amount of vitamin absorbed thru the nose.

· Notes for Professionals: The intranasal forms of cyanocobalamin, vitamin B12, should be administered at least one hour before or one hour after ingestion of hot foods or liquids. Hot foods may cause nasal secretions and a resulting loss of medication or medication efficacy. Interactions between foods and oral or injectable forms of cyanocobalamin are not expected.

Foods containing olestra

· Severity: Mild

· Notes for Consumers: If large amounts of foods containing olestra are eaten (such as WOW chips, fat-free Pringles, or Utz Yes potato chips), the absorbtion of certain vitamins, including Phytonadione, Vitamin K 1, may be decreased.

· Notes for Professionals: The food supplement olestra, if ingested in sufficient quantities, may decrease the oral absorption of vitamin K.

Pediatric Multivitamin, Powder for Solution for Injection

Food

· Severity: Moderate

· Notes for Consumers: Avoid drinking hot beverages or eating hot food around the times you take Niacin. Ingesting hot food or beverages may worsen skin flushing (example: warm and reddened skin of the face, neck, or chest) while taking Niacin. Alcoholic beverages may also have this effect, so also avoid drinking alcohol around the time of your Niacin dose. Taking Niacin with meals may help to decrease skin flushing.

· Notes for Professionals: Hot beverages and foods can exacerbate cutaneous vasodilation caused by niacin and should be avoided around the time of niacin ingestion. In general, this interaction would not be harmful, but might decrease patient tolerance of niacin.
