Most commonly there are three types of drug interactions:

Drug-drug interaction: When the reaction occurs between two (or more) drugs. For example if you take a drug for allergy (an antihistamine) and also take a sedative for sleep, the two drugs together slow your reaction time. This can be dangerous when you are driving a car.

Drug-food interaction:The drug reacts with food or beverage. For example, if you are taking alcohol with metronidazole it can cause flushing, headache, palpitations, nausea and vomiting.

Drug-condition interaction: A drug reaction that occurs when the drug is taken in certain medical conditions. For example if you have borderline kidney disease and you take pain killers, it can make your kidney disease worse.
