One thought on “What should I avoid while taking charcoal?

  1. Arti says:

    Since charcoal is often taken only when needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. Charcoal binds to other drugs and can make them less effective, which could become dangerous. Do not take charcoal with any other medicine. You should not use this medication if you have ever had an allergic reaction to charcoal. Take your dose of charcoal at least 2 hours before or 1 hour after a dose of any other medicine. If it’s almost time for your next dose, wait until then to take the medicine and skip the missed dose. If you are taking the medication regularly, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
