Drug - Food Interactions

You can apply chemistry in your daily life to make sure any drugs you use aren't compromised or overly strengthened by the foods you eat. For example, many drugs are affected by alcohol. Some medications are negated by eating something as seemingly harmless as grapefruit! Others contain caffeine as an active ingredient, so if you take the medicine with coffee or cola, you're increasing your dosage.
