interactionHigh potassium foods Pleurisy root Potassium supplements Depletion or interferenceNone known Side effect reduction preventionNone known Supportive interactionNone known Interactions with Dietary Supplements Potassium Some beta adrenergic blockers called nonselective beta blockers decrease the uptake of potassium from the blood into the cells leading to excess potassium in the blood a potentially dangerous condition known as hyperkalemia People taking beta blockers should therefore avoid taking potassium supplements or eating large uantities of fruit eg bananas unless directed to do so by their doctor Interactions with Herbs Pleurisy root As pleurisy root and other plants in the Aesclepius genus contain cardiac glycosides it is best to avoid use of pleurisy root with heart medications such as beta blockers Interaction with Foods and Other Compounds Taking acebutolol with food slows the rate of absorption and reduces the maximum blood levels of the drug though overall absorption is not affected However the blood level of an active breakdown product of acebutolol is reduced Though the activity of acebutolol is affected by food people taking the drug on a daily basis are not likely to experience a reduction in the effectiveness of the drug if it is taken with a meal Acetaminophen Common names AF Abenol Acetab Acet Alisphene Forte Alvedon Anadin Paracetamol APAP

N acetyl cysteine NAC Hospitals use oral and intravenous N acetyl cysteine NAC to treat liver damage induced by acetaminophen overdose poisoning NAC is often administered intravenously by emergency room doctors Oral NAC appears to be effective for acetaminophen toxicity An uncontrolled trial compared intravenous NAC with oral NAC in children with acetaminophen poisoning and found that both methods were eually effective in reversing acetaminophen induced liver toxicity However acetaminophen toxicity is a potential medical emergency and should only be managed by ualified healthcare professionals Vitamin C Taking grams vitamin C with acetaminophen has been shown to prolong the amount of time acetaminophen stays in the body This theoretically might allow people to use less acetaminophen thereby reducing the risk of side effects Consult with a doctor about this potential before reducing the amount of acetaminophen Interactions with Herbs Hibiscus One small study found that hibiscus could decrease levels of acetaminophen if the drug was taken after the tea was consumed though it was not entirely clear if the decreases were clinically significant Milk thistle Silybum marianum Silymarin is a collection of complex flavonoids found in milk thistle that has been shown to elevate liver glutathione levels in rats Acetaminophen can cause liver damage which is believed to involve glutathione depletion In one study involving rats silymarin protected against acetaminophen induced glutathione depletion While studies to confirm this action in humans have not been conducted some doctors recommend silymarin supplementation with mg milk thistle extract containing % silymarin three times per day for people taking acetaminophen in large amounts forthan one year and or with other risk factors for liver problems Schisandra Schisandra chinensis Gomisin A is a constituent found in the Chinese herb schisandra I.

of salbutamol albuterol in people receiving digoxin albuterol was associated with decreased serum digoxin levels No interactions between albuterol and digitalis have been reported Untilis known albuterol and digitalis containing products should be used only under the direct supervision of a doctor trained in their use Coleus A test tube study demonstrated that the bronchodilating effects of salbutamol albuterol were significantly increased by the addition of forskolin the active component of the herb Coleus forskohlii The results of this preliminary research suggest that the combination of forskolin and beta agonists such as albuterol might provide an alternative to raising the doses of the beta agonist drugs as they lose effectiveness Untilis known coleus should not be combined with albuterol without the supervision of a doctor Interactions with Foods and Other Compounds Food Albuterol may be taken with food to prevent stomach upset Aldactazide Contains the following ingredients

preventionNone known Supportive interactionNone known Reduced drug absorption bioavailabilityNone known Adverse interactionNone known Interactions with Dietary Supplements Calcium Calcium supplements may interfere with alendronate absorption However one researcher suggested that addition of large amounts of supplemental calcium to alendronate therapy in patients with bone metastases with evidence of osteomalacia related to prostate cancer might improve the clinical outcome Moreover both calcium and alendronate are commonly used in the treatment of osteoporosis in the same people To prevent potential interactions alendronate should be taken two hours before or after calcium supplements Magnesium Absorption of tiludronate a drug related to alendronate is reduced when taken with magnesium page and or aluminum page containing antacids This interaction has not yet been reported with alendronate Untilis known alendronate should be taken two hours before or after magnesium and or aluminum containing antacids page Interactions with Foods and Other Compounds Food Food coffee and orange juice significantly reduce absorption of alendronate Alendronate should be taken with a large glass of

absorption bioavailabilityNone known Adverse interactionNone known Interactions with Dietary Supplements Vitamin D Individuals with gout have low blood concentration of the active form of vitamin D dihydroxycholecalciferol and allopurinol corrects this problem L carnitine People who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy have low levels of L carnitine in their muscles Allopurinol restores L carnitine to normal levels resulting in improved muscle strength Whether L carnitine supplementation might improve this effect of allopurinol has not been investigated L tryptophan In a preliminary study seven of eight individuals with severe mental depression showed improvement when they took L tryptophan and allopurinol of these seven five experienced full remission Controlled research is necessary to determine whether this combination might beeffective for severe depression than standard treatment Interactions with Foods and Other Compounds Food Allopurinol may be taken with food to prevent stomach upset Protein Compared with people on high protein diets people on low protein diets excrete less allopurinol resulting in a threefold increase in the time it takes for the drug to be removed from the body Vegetarians and those who eat low protein diets grams of protein a day or less should discuss this possible interaction with their healthcare practitioner before taking allopurinol Alcohol According to animal research alcohol reduces the activity of antioxidant systems involving vitamin E vitamin C and selenium leading to tissue damage in the cerebellum however allopurinol reverses this effect Drinking alcoholic beverages also increases the removal of allopurinol from the body thereby reducing the effectiveness of the drug Therefore people taking allopurinol should avoid alcoholThis comprehensive review of drug nutrient interactionsby far the most exhaustive of its kindis an invaluable tool for consumers and professionals integrating the worlds of conventional and alternative medicineJulian Whitaker MD editor of Health Healing newsletter An essential resourceJoe Graedon MS author of The Peoples Pharmacy.
