Meds And Some Foods Don’t Mix.

If you take medication regularly, check with your doctor or pharmacist about food and drug interactions.

Green leafy vegetables, pine nuts and cashews are high in vitamin K and can interfere with anticoagulant drugs like Coumadin (warfarin).

Don’t wash down meds with grapefruit juice, especially cholesterol lowering medications.

Pomegranate juice can interfere with blood pressure medications, antidepressants, AIDS drugs, and some narcotic pain relievers.

Salt substitutes often use potassium in place of sodium which can decrease the effectiveness of digoxin used for heart failure and ACE inhibitors used to treat high blood pressure.
