Alcohol, Food and Drug Interactions

What you eat and drink may affect the way your medicines work. Some foods interfere with the body's ability to absorb medications into the blood stream. On the other hand, some prescription medications should be taken with food to prevent stomach irritation.  Some combinations may create new symptoms.

Be sure to ask your doctor about the effects of food on your prescribed medication, especially whenever you are given a new prescription.
