Beware of Dangerous Drug Interactions

Some medications don't mix. So if you are taking drugs together watch out for those drug interactions.
  • Antibiotics - Some antibiotic drugs do not mix with citrus fruits, dairy foods, calcium or iron supplements.
  • Nasal decongestant and antihistamines - some of them don't mix with blood pressure medications, tranquilizers, antidepressants or pain killers.
  • Certain heart medications like calcium channel blockers for chest pain. - avoid grapefruit and grapejuice because it changes how the body absorbs those drugs.
