Moxifloxacin administration should be separated from aluminum and magnesium containing antacids, sucralfate (Carafate), and multivitamins because they can lower absorption of moxifloxacin and reduce its effectiveness. They should be administered 4 hours before or 8 hours after moxifloxacin. Moxifloxacin should be used with caution with warfarin (Coumadin) because moxifloxacin can increase the effect of warfarin and risks of bleeding and bruising. Moxifloxacin should be used with caution with sotalol (Betapace) because it can contribute to abnormal heart rhythm.
