    Question Can you take prune juice with meds?

    i tried to find this out on the web but cant find anything on it. does anyone know if you can drink prune juice within a close time of taking meds? im asking because prune juice is a laxative and i know you cant take meds within 2 hours or so of other laxatives, but dont know if its different because prune juice is natural. anyone know the answer to this?

    I assume they don't want you to take anything that accelerates the "transit time" of the medicines through your, er, system too much So if prune juice has a dramatic effect on your innards, you might want to avoid it until the medicines have had a chance to be absorbed.

    I've wondered about just regular juice with my meds as well. I take a hormone replacement for my thyroid since I had to have it destroyed a few years back and I'm supposed to take it first thing in the morning an hour before I eat anything. I have trouble drinking water first thing in the morning, it makes me gag for some reason. But I can drink juice fine. So I've been wondering if I took my meds with a bit of juice in the morning if the juice would actually count as food. I have yet to do it because I figure that juice would equal food, but if anyone knows different I would love to hear about it.

    And yeah, I wouldn't recommend that anyone just throw their meds away, especially without knowing what their medical problem is. I tried for the past 3 years to go without my meds and just eat right and exercise (both because I don't like the idea of taking synthetic chemicals which aren't vegan and because I had no money or insurance) but it didn't work. My health just slowly went down hill until I finally had to go to the doctor and get my meds just to be able to function. Now I've been back on my meds for 10 days and can already feel a difference. My hair is even already starting to fill back in and when I comb it in the morning I don't have handfuls fall out anymore!! And yesterday I made it a quarter of a mile up the Manitou incline (which is a trail that goes straight up the side of a mountain, it's one of the steepest inclines in the US). Sorry, just had to brag a bit about my accomplishments since I've been so down and out for the past 3 years !!!
