Relevant interactions between foods and medications are those that produce a significant modification of the pharmacological activity of the drug administered, which may entail an adjustment of the dose or even change or avoid treatment. The incidence and magnitude is variable, but the potential is very high because foods are the substances that are most associated with the administration of drugs. The risk factors that favor the interactions depend on the patients, the drugs and the type of food. The interactions can be pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic, and the most frequent are those that affect the absorption of the drugs and those that interfere with the metabolization through CYP450. The most effective way to prevent interaction is to adequately inform how the medication should be taken in relation to meals and always consider the safest alternative possible.
