Brief Answer:
fava beans, moth balls, aspirin, etc

Detailed Answer:
There are more than 200 variants so different preventive measures may apply for each case but a general rule is to avoid (or be cautious with) fava beans, moth balls, aspirin, antimalarial drugs, certain antibiotics (like ciprofloxacin, nalidixic acid, etc), vitamin K analogues, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), etc.

You'd better avoid using any drug without asking your doctor first.

Kind Regards!
