ABSTRACT:
Medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter, are used every day to treat sudden, short-term and long-term illness. The medicine based importance of food-drug interactions can be altered. Food-drug interactions can lead to a loss of medically helpful effectiveness or poisonous effects of drug therapy. It can help people live healthy lives for a lengthy period. Food and the nutrients they contain can interact with medicines. This can cause unwanted effects. A food-drug interaction happens when a food or on of its parts, interferes with the way a drug is used in the body. In some events, the interaction may have a helpful effect by increasing the drug effectiveness or reducing possible side effects. Most food-drug interactions happen through three methods: reduced rate or extent of concentration, increased rate or extent of concentration or through chemical/ pharmacological effects. Here an attempt has been made to briefly outline the common food-drug and drug-nutrient interactions which may be useful in combating the possible happenings of interactions. Along with this, the importance of consultation with a doctor or pharmacist prior to any sort of medication has been explained to gain maximum benefits from medicines.
