Drug- Food Interactions/ Drug Interaction with Food

The food that you eat can greatly affect the action of certain tablets or ‘medications’ and result in side effects which can be harmful.
Food-drug interaction mainly involves the interaction of drug with food, herbs, dairy products, alcohol and caffeine.
Occasionally certain food items can reduce the effectiveness of the drug itself and it is important to avoid them when such medications are taken.
