Which super foods should I avoid while on medication?

I have High Blood Pressure, type 2 Diabeties and Cholesterol is a little high. I take Lisinopril 20 mg and Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg twice a day along with Verapamil 120 mg once a day and Metformin 500 mg once a day, no meds for cholesterol yet. I also take a very good Mutivitamin. Was wondering which super foods to avoid, such as Goji Berries, Cacao Nibs, Flax Seeds, Maca Powder and Chia Seeds also the SuperFood Superboost. After drinking my first blast ( Blood Pressure Ambrosia ) which has Cacao nibs in it, I experienced an issue with my heart, it felt like small electric charges were going through my heart. First time ever using Cacao and never experienced anything like that before. Please help. I want to eat healthier and get healthy with Nutriblast, I feel it is the best way to get the nutrients we need.

I can't tell you off the top of my head what foods you should avoid, however, there are certain resources such as this one:

And this one here - when you type in the food, it tells you any interactions with drugs (this one is for goji berries): http://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/herb/lycium

These can help you determine certain food and drug interactions that are relevant to your situation. Be sure to also talk to your Dr. and a pharmacist so they can give you specifics as it relates to your personal health situation and the medications and dosages.
My mom has pre diabetes. Or should say had. I'm believing by faith and backing up with good food nutrition believing for complete healing. Thank God she went to the doctor. I'm looking up recipes that would be good for this. also doing herbal life. So thee 2 combined …should be instant results for my family.
