Food Drug Interaction
It's referred to as a Food-Drug interaction when food impacts a medication in the body. Food can interfere with a medication's ability to act properly, improve or worsen a Medication's negative effects, or even bring on brand-new ones. Additionally, drugs can alter how the body processes food. Neither prescription nor over-the-counter (OTC) medications are immune from the effects of Food-drug interactions. These include drinks, antacids, vitamins, iron supplements, herbs, and dietary supplements. Because they bind to the components of some medications, some foods can impact how you metabolize them. Food intake causes a variety of physiological changes in the human intestinal (GI) tract, which can alter a drug's release, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and/or elimination, hence affecting its Pharmacokinetic profile.
