What Should You Avoid Taking With Colloidal Silver Supplements?

Thursday, 24 Sep 2015 07:10 PM

Before taking colloidal silver supplements, you should be aware there are some moderate interactions that may occur between the supplements and certain drugs.

The Food and Drug Administration warns that taking dietary supplements with silver can cause the body to have greater difficulty absorbing certain drugs, including quinolone antibiotics (ciprofloxacin [Cipro], norfloxacin [Noroxin], ofloxacin), tetracycline antibiotics, thyroxine, and penacillamine (Cuprimine).

It is recommended that an individual speak with a healthcare provider before starting to take colloidal silver supplements as it can weaken the effectiveness of some drugs.

In the case of tetracycline antibiotics, RxList recommends when taking the two together that the colloidal silver is consumed at least two hours before the antibiotics or at least four hours after.

Additionally, it is recommended that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding do not use colloidal silver supplements. According to WebMD, increased silver levels in pregnant women have been linked to abnormal development of the ear, face, and neck of babies.

Too much silver ingested can lead to accumulation of silver in an individual’s body and cause discoloration of the skin to a blue-gray tint known as argyria.

While there are maximum dosage guidelines, there aren’t any known suggestions of dosages that will allow an individual to certainly avoid argyria.

The FDA gives no indication that the buildup causes harm to the individual, noting argyria is not dangerous to physical health, but you should talk to a doctor before adding colloidal silver supplements to your regimen.
