Foods containing high levels of potassium can interfere with ACE inhibitors
19 July 2014: The Weekly News reported on foods that can affect how some medicines work. Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) spokesman Paul Johnson was interviewed by the paper. He highlighted that some foods, such as bananas, oranges and green leafy vegetables, are high in potassium and so those taking ACE inhibitors should be careful. Johnson also noted that some antidepressants should not be taken with large amounts of chocolate, because chocolate and caffeine can negate the effects of sleeping pills.
