I am a newbie to this drug myself, and I have not been given any forbidden foods, just a few caveats. I don't take my multi-vitamins until a minimum of 3 hrs after my morning pill b/c my doc told me calcium can interfere with absorption. Other over-the-counter meds and supplements may also have that same caveat... other than this, I am not aware of any other food restrictions.
