FOOD AND MEDICATION INTERACTIONS
The food we eat and the medications we take often interact. Almost all the time it is accidental. Why is this a problem? Simply because interactions will diminish or exacerbate medication properties. Therefore, it is important that all nutrition professionals have the knowledge to teach about food-drug interactions to their patients and clients. This webinar will focus on the commonly prescribed medications taken.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Identify the foods and beverages to be avoided with medications prescribed to their patients.


  • Locate resources to be used to identify food-medication interactions.


  • Counsel patients on food medication interactions.
