“Generally
speaking under-reporting is a reality for spontaneous reporting
systems and probably the level of under-reporting is even higher for
herbals or food supplements because the use of these products is
often unknown to a patient’s healthcare professional”, (de Boer, van Hunsel & Bast 2015, pg.5)

I really liked this article.  Its simple to understand and outlines interactions clearly, especially with the table on pages 4 and 5.  Its always good to be educated about you pharmaceuticals, and always ask your doctor or pharmacist about food-drug interactions when taking any new medication(s).
