–> Food Drug Interactions <–
Spring Has Sprung
I can literally smell spring in this gorgeous Bay Area air. And while most are dreaming of bunnies, flings, and marshmallows… For me, the first place my mind goes is this:
Pollen and grass and weeds are fervently banging on my door, pounding on my windows, and slyly sneaking through the cracks.. and I’m hiding under my bed… trying desperately to avoid the allergies that plague my “overly sensitive immune system” this time of the year.
Really, I’m just trying to survive so that I can enjoy the bunnies and marshmallows. Thank goodness for Claritin, Right?
I’m not a drinker myself, but did you know that alcohol exacerbates the drowsiness of antihistamines? So… if you’re planning on a cocktail during that concert on a beautiful April evening… and you pop a Claritin/ Zyrtec/ Benadryl (whatever your drug of choice) before you go… it’s possible that the music you’ve been dying to enjoy has become your lullaby. Night Night.
Food Drug Interactions
If you take any of prescription medications, it’s beneficial to think about food drug interactions. I know my mind usually skips over this important detail, and then my medication will leave me feeling a certain way… and I’m not sure why.
Blink Health, has put together an infographic on this topic to help educate the public on some common food drug interactions.
If you’ve never heard of Blink Health Before, this is a company strives to make prescriptions more available to the public by providing them at the lowest possible cost.
We like making healthy food choices right? But when we throw medications into the mix… that brings up some additional factors to think about when we’re meal planning and food ordering.
