Drug-Vitamin Supplement Interactions


There are a vast number of prescription drugs available today – too many to list in a pocket size reference guide like this. However, the most commonly prescribed drugs account for as much as approximately 80% of all prescriptions.

With this in mind, we have listed more than 80 top prescribed medications and concisely explained any interaction that may occur between the drug and a vitamin, mineral or other nutritional supplement.

We chose not to focus on herb supplements because the “sister” book to this publication, Herb Drug Interactions, covers the 100 most popular herbs and their interactions with generic drugs. Information on Herb Drug Interactions can be found at www.mediscript.net/hdsample.html. Where it was considered vital information, however, we have listed some herbs.

The information contained in this book can tell you the following:

How supplements help drugs work better

Which drugs deplete your body of important nutrients

Which drugs and supplements should never be taken together

Which drug side effects can be reduced by taking a particular supplement

Millions of biochemical reactions take place within your body all the time. What you eat, drink or in any way ingest can influence those biochemical reactions, and influence the effect of prescription drugs.

I look upon the “Herb Interaction” book as a “quickie” for my pharmacy team, no need to get bogged down on the computer.

We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.

We had the highest BRC (business Reply Card) return rate of all time – it built up great customer goodwill and easier repeat calls.

The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
