Some foods can counteract your medication, and even cause extreme illness - so take a look at these food/medicine combos your should NEVER take together: 

 

1. Limes & Cough Medicine - limes, oranges block an enzyme that breaks down statins and other drugs, including the cough suppressant dextromethorphan. Because the medication then builds up in your bloodstream, the risk for side effects increases

 

2. Dairy products & Antibiotics -  Some antibiotics, including Cipro, bind to calcium, iron, and other minerals in milk-based foods. “This prevents the absorption of the antibiotics, ultimately decreasing their ability to fight infections,

 

3. Smoked meats & Antidepressants - Check the label; If they belong to a class called mono-amine oxidase inhibitors combining them with foods rich in the amino acid tyramine can cause life-threatening spikes in blood pressure. list of no-nos include summer sausage, smoked salmon, also red wine, sauerkraut, hot dogs, aged cheeses, soy sauce, and draft or home-brewed beer. The good news? Canned or bottled beer probably won’t hurt you

 

4. Chocolate & Ritalin -  Besides caffeine, chocolate also contains a stimulant called theobromine (It’s the reason chocolate harms dogs--canine bodies can’t break it down.)

5. Apple juice & Allergy meds - Nix the nectar from apples, oranges, and grapefruits if you take Allegra (fexofenadine) for hay fever. These juices inhibit a peptide that transports the drug from your gut to your bloodstream. The resulting lack of absorption makes Allegra up to 70 percent less effective at stopping your sniffling and sneezing,

 

6. Cinnamon & Warfarin - People taking the blood-thinning medication warfarin--prescribed to prevent or treat clots--have long been warned to keep their intake of vitamin K - shouldn’t change your weekly intake of foods like leafy greens or broccoli
