Health Tip: Drug and Food Interactions

(HealthDay News) - Many medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, can negatively interact with foods, supplements or other drugs.

Here are guidelines to help prevent food-drug interactions, courtesy of the American Academy of Family Physicians:
  • Check prescription and over-the-counter drug labels to see if they contain any warnings.
    Follow directions on all medications carefully.
  • Unless you get your doctor's OK, never break up pills and mix them with food, and never empty capsules into food.
  • Take medications with a whole glass of water, unless your doctor has given you other instructions. Never take medications with alcohol.
  • Don't take your medications at the same time as you take vitamins or dietary supplements.
  • Don't mix medications in a hot drink, as the heat may affect the medication.
