  • warfarin and simvastatin (Zocor): increased risk of bleeding problems like bleeding ulcers, rectal bleeding, and easy bruising; also increases the possibility of statin side effects like muscle pain and muscle tissue death. (Statin-related pain is a serious problem; here are seven reasons not to dismiss it.)
  • niacin and either atorvastatin (Lipitor) or simvastatin (Zocor): increased risk of muscle pain or muscle tissue death
  • lisinopril (Zestril, Prinivil) and potassium: increased risk ofhyperkalemia, a dangerous elevation of potassium that can lead to heart attacks or even death
  • ginkgo and aspirin: increased risk of bleeding problems
  • garlic pills and warfarin: increased risk of bleeding problems
