STOP taking drugs with soft drinks!

Taking drugs with  beverages such as soft drinks could have adverse effects.

Drugs, if taken with soft drinks might affect the absorption of the drugs.

Experts have noted that most soft drinks are acidic, which could decrease the anti bacterial action of some drugs (tetracyline) as they contain carbonates.

Acidic beverages delay the absorption rate and action of drugs like Erythromycin.

It's advisable to take drugs preferably with water as it has the properties capable of eliminating unwanted effects.
