According to a study published in 2017 by the journal of Clinical Toxicology, about 1.3 million Americans are at risk of making a deadly mistake of mixing medications. More people are killed each year from deadly medication interactions than die annually from car accidents.

It’s a dirty secret of Big Pharma: little to no research actually exists on exactly how just two (let alone multiple) prescription drugs interact with each other, and what fatal effects can be expected. Add to the mix over the counter drugs and your guess is as good as anyone’s as to what can happen. The only safe way to avoid deadly drug interactions is to keep all of them out of your body in the first place.
