    Green Tea May Interfere With a Blood Pressure Medicine

    A small, early study found that green tea may interfere with the blood pressure medication nadolol (Corgard). Blood levels of the drug in those consuming three cups of green tea a day for 14 days were 76% lower than their water-drinking counterparts. Researchers say that ingredients in green tea may interfere with the medication's absorption in the intestine.
