Inositol Interactions

The following are the medications and supplements that are more likely to cause a reaction with inositol supplements:

  • Antibiotics
    People taking antibiotics may have decreased absorption of inositol (and the other B vitamins and co-factors) from the foods eaten and this means there may be a requirement for supplementation with inositol, especially people taking antibiotics long term.
  • d-Glucose
    People taking d-glucose may have decreased absorption of inositol (and the other B vitamins and co-factors) from the foods eaten and this means there may be a requirement for supplementation with inositol, especially people taking d-glucose long term.
  • Lithium
    People taking lithium should not take inositol supplements at the same time because the inositol will increase the excretion of lithium and reduce its effectiveness.
Inositol interacts with several medications, in particular, people taking lithium should not also take inositol at the same time

Other Interactions with Inositol

Inositol also has interactions with other substances, as follows:

  • Alcohol
    Alcohol decreases the absorption of inositol, so supplementation may be required.
  • Tobacco
    Tobacco also reduces the absorption of inositol, so supplementation may also be required.
