9 Foods You Should NEVER Mix with Your Medication
Alcohol & SSRIs
We all know that mixing alcohol with meds is generally a bad idea. However, few of us know just how much it harms us especially when taken with certain drugs.
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, or SSRI, is a category of antidepressants commonly used to treat depression and anxiety disorders. Unfortunately, though, many cases of depression are linked to alcohol consumption, so there’s a great likelihood for the two to be mixed (accidentally or not).
This can have a devastating impact. Dr. Ellis points out that ‘the risk of combining these with alcohol is stomach or gastrointestinal bleeding.’
ATTENTION! This information is crucial for your health, so if you’re planning to take antidepressants, make sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist for directions.
