Beverage and Drug Interactions Reminder

I am re-posting this reminder from Can-do-Man:

"A reminder about certain drinks with some Meds. I remember being warned about drinking grapefruit juice while on treatment
.
Grapefruit juice negatively interacts with more than 50 medications, including statins. Because the effects of the citrus juice last more than 24 hours, simply taking your meds at a different time won't solve the problem.

Calcium can interfere with the effectiveness of thyroid medication. Wait at least 4 hours after dosage to drink any calcium-rich beverages."

Geez I was drinking a glass of lemon juice almost every day while on treatment.I hope it doesn't affect the chances of SVR.
