Chlorhexidine is pharmaceutically compatible with preparations of the cationic group and is incompatible with alkaline and anionic compounds. Ascorbic acid in combination with indirect anticoagulants and heparin reduces their effectiveness.

Vitamin C lowers the concentration of oral contraceptives in the blood, and tricyclic antidepressants reduce tubular reabsorption.
