Sodium may interfere with the way the body processes certain drugs using the liver's cytochrome P450 enzyme system. As a result, the levels of these drugs in the blood may be affected, and the intended effects may be altered. People taking any medications should check the package insert and speak with a qualified healthcare professional, including a pharmacist, about possible interactions.
Sodium may also interact with agents that treat heart conditions, corticosteroids, or diuretics.
