8 Common Foods And Medications You Should Never, Ever Mix

Many of us have taken medication in our day. Some of us take it only occasionally for a specific ailment, while some of us  take them for chronic issues.

And while medicine is designed to keep you healthy, it can sometimes be dulled, or worse, by the other choices we make while taking it.

Obviously, side effects are listed along with any prescription, as are warnings about what not to do while on a certain type of medication. And even then, sometimes the side effects can be downright scary, like the asthma medication that inspired suicidal thoughts in a four-year-old.

But did you know that everyday foods can also have an effect on your medication and on your body?

It turns out that certain foods can have unexpected effects when they interact with certain medications inside your body.

And we’re not just talking about junk food, either. This can happen with food that, normally, is very good for you!

As always, talk to your doctor if any of the below information applies to you, and see what they have to say, and if they can come up with a solution that works best for you. It’s always a good idea to consult a professional before making major changes to your diet!
