Question from: Lucille
Posted on: February 4, 2003

I was just wondering about a herb my mom can take. She has chronic bronchitis & asthma A woman at the health food store recommended Mullein. Could she take this herb she has high blood pressure & heart disease? Is it safe enough? Also she is on blood thinners.

We have answered similar questions previously and the answers are posted on our website at http://www.richters.com/ Please go to the "Q&A" section and search for "mullein". Past articles on this subject will come up.

We have never heard of any complications of taking mullein with blood thinners or blood pressure medicine. That doesn’t mean that there is no possibility of problems taking mullein with these drugs; it’s just that there is no evudence that we are aware of that warrant any special concerns or precautions.
