The Impact of Medication with Tea
In many cases, medication does not advocate the use of tea, particularly in the treatment of anemia with ferrous sulfate, ferrous carbonate, iron, iron containing amines such as aluminum hydroxide, and aluminum-containing agents similar to that in medicine. Tea polyphenols are substances encountered in metal ion binding and this interaction can cause the medication to decrease or lose efficacy. In addition, tea contains the stimulant caffeine, and when taking a sedative, hypnotic, or antitussive drug, tea is not suitable to mix. To avoid the effects of the medicine conflicting, reduce the amount of tea consumed. Some herbs such as ephedra, berberine, quinine, fishing cane, baicalin, and ginseng generally should not be mixed with medicine, or medicine will lose efficacy. When taking enzymes, such as protease or amylase, do not take with tea. Taking tea polyphenols in combination with enzymes can reduce enzyme activity. The mixing of alkaloids, atropine, aspirin and other drugs with tea is not appropriate because to how the tea is digested in the body. When taking furazolidone or procarbazine, even a small amount of tea can cause insomnia or high blood pressure. It is generally believed that two hours after taking your medication, it is fine to drink tea. However, Vitamins, stimulants, blood fat reduction drugs, and blood sugar lowering drugs, are all compatible with drinking tea. For example tea catechins can help to digest and absorb vitamin C in the body. Tea itself is similar to many medicines in how it enhances the reduction of blood fat, lowers blood sugar, and offers many other health benefits.
