What Doesn’t Mix With Your Meds

Antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice may sound like a good idea, but it can interfere with blood pressure medications, antidepressants, AIDS drugs, and some narcotic pain relievers. Pine nuts and cashews are high in vitamin K and can interfere with anticoagulant drugs like Coumadin (warfarin). Grapefruit juice increases the potency of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs which could cause dangerous side effects. If you take prescription drugs and drink juice regularly, check with your pharmacist for possible interactions.
