Abstract

Antacids containing magnesium trisilicate can decrease the oral bioavailability of sulthiame by up to 73 %, while antacids containing bismuth oxycarbonate and magnesium oxide can decrease the oral bioavailability of sulthiame by <105 %. To avoid problems, administration of sulthiame and antacids should be separated by at least 2 h [1].
