Don't Mix Your Meds With These Foods
Don't Mix Your Meds With These Foods
Research shows that some foods and drinks can rob your medications of some of their powers. Or they can cause serious, even life-threatening, reactions. Here's a list of seven foods that don't mix well with common drugs. But, you don't need to worry if you see one of your favorite foods or drinks listed here. You probably will not have to give it up, but just cut back or wait a few hours to indulge. This is a partial list; to be safe, ask your doctor and pharmacist about possible food interactions with any drugs you take. Read the warnings in inserts that come with your prescription meds, and in the fine print on over-the-counter drugs.
