had a chat with my consultant today and bought up a problem that happens every now & again.
I get tachycardia and also chest pains every now & again - no connection to just having a ventolin neb, wasn't on the s/c either!
Asked about varying theo levels and he suggested it could be a food and drug interactions. I know grapefruit interacts with things like ACE inhibitors ( heart pills) something to do with absorbtion. I also know of the drug interations as detailed on the leaflet in the box.
So, does anyone know about interactions of food such as Grapefruit ( whole & juiced) and cranberry (Juice or extract capsules) and Theophylline?
Please let me know.... though I do have a grapefruit to try and will keep a log of any symptoms and try to remember what I have eaten!
Any suggestions from other peeps and medical peeps alike!
