9 Foods You Should NEVER Mix with Your Medication
Licorice & Spironolactone
Aldactone (medically called spironolactone) is a diuretic type of medication mostly recommended to treat potassium deficiencies or heart failure, as per MedlinePlus.
Although licorice foods and beverages aren’t nearly as popular as other options on our list, they’re definitely worth mentioning. Why?
According to Dr. Ellis, licorice consumption triggers the same receptors as spironolactone, which cancels the effects of the drug. Regardless if you’re consuming licorice in the form of candy, tea or supplements, it’s best to stay away from it during treatment.
