if it contains aspartame or nutra sweet, same thing different names, there
is some effect on the mix of meds with diet coke. it is not a natural
sweetener but artificial.
i'd much prefer drinking sugar than the artificial stuff, even with all
thats just one website with info about it.
heath ledger was taking some kind of meds and drank lots of diet coke
apparently and look where it got him.
as soon as the food/drink companys start using steveia, a natural sweetener,
better i reckon.
i read stevia has been approved by the FDA as GRAS(generally recommended as
stevia is also calorie free.
iirc, it was the sugar growers who lobbied against using stevia.
stevia is sweeter than sugar so less is needed to do its job so the growers
make less money out of it.
sorry, that reply is not well written but i'm sure you can search and read
up on that anyhow.
brain in yet in gear this am.

This ng has an amazing amount of knowledge available and I haven't been
successful in my internet searches for an answer, so I come to y'all- once
again- for answers.
A friend told me that any prescription medicines or vitamins that I take
with a swig of my much-loved Diet Cherry Coke are a waste. She claims the
Coke will cause my body to not absorb them or the Coke will 'destroy or
breakdown the meds/vitamins or some such. I really didn't pay much
attention since I didn't want to hear that stuff. (She lectures me on the
dangers of any diet drink.) Does anybody know if this has any truth to it
or not? Or any ideas on what or how I can search to find out for certain?
And, please, no lectures on drinking Diet Cherry Coke- it's one of the small
pleasures I have left. ;-)
