Drug-Nutrient Interactions Disclaimer

Drug-Nutrient Interactions Disclaimer: Main Image

Drug interaction information in Healthnotes is not intended to replace information supplied by a doctor or chemist; neither is it intended to replace package inserts or other printed material that may be available or accompany a particular drug.

The Aisle7 science team reviews known major interactions between pharmaceutical drugs and food, specific nutrients, and herbs—for example, inhibition of vitamin K caused by antibiotics or iron deficiency triggered by long-term use of aspirin.

What is not covered in this section?

  • Side effects that may be caused by a drug
  • Interactions between two or more drugs
  • Interactions between alcohol and specific nutrients
  • Interactions between drugs and water (for example, drugs inducing dehydration)

Although the drug information in this product is extensive, it does not include every drug-nutrient or drug-herb interaction. Therefore, if a drug is not mentioned, drug-food, drug-nutrient, or drug-herb interactions may still exist. Finally, new interactions discovered between published updates will appear in the next published update.

For these reasons, it is not sufficient to rely solely on the information presented here. It is always wise for people seeking information about interactions between a prescription drug and food, specific nutrients, or herbs to talk with their chemist, prescribing physician, or both.
