My 79 year old father is struggling with Alzheimer’s.
He is currently taking the following meds:
simvastatin (20 MG once a day)
warfarin sodium (6 MG once a day)
namenda (10 MG twice a day)
enalapril maleate (20 MG once a day)
exelon (9.5 MG 24 hr patch once a day)
B-12 (2000 MCG once a day)
Should these meds be taken with food?
How does coffee affect these meds?
What is the best way to take each of these meds?
This should be discussed with the prescribing doctor(s).
However, by doing a drug interaction check, you will find
that with the first 2 meds, Simvastatin may slightly increase the anticoagulant response to Warfarin.
It will also give you some interactions with certain foods.
Hope this helps.
