Healthbytes - Watch for important interactions between over-the-counter, prescription drugs

Many people who take prescription drugs wish to take an over the counter drug from time to time and may give no thought to its possible effect on their prescription drug or their underlying disease. On the other hand, they may be concerned about an interaction, but not know whom to ask, are too timid to ask, or there may be no one available at night or on a weekend. The package or insert may carry a list of warnings, but the print is small, and the warnings may be confusing. This column will address some potentially dangerous problems with OTC drug classes and their effects on commonly used drugs and common diseases.

Attention to Detail

Carol Saari — and, from left to right — Wendel Norton and Andrew Norton with Norton Arts Fine Art Conservation of Little Rock refurbish the Arkansas flag mural Thursday afternoon behind the Dexter Harding House overlooking the Martha Mitchell Expressway. The project — which is expected to be complete next week — involves stripping off old paint and grime, applying a primer where needed, repainting and applying an ultraviolet coating.
