Drug-Herb Interactions and Formula for Weight Loss
Answered by: Christine Dennis
Question from: Terry
Posted on: December 07, 2007

I am being treated with medication for the following: atrial fib, fibromyalgia, cholesterol, hypertension, airborne allergies.

I am taking HCTZ, Norvasc, Lotensin, Atacand, Coumadin, Atenolol, Zocor, Celebrex, Zyrtec, Flonase, Antidepresant.

The following ingredients are in a product that I want to take for weight loss. I am concerned about the interactions of these herbs with my prescriptions and conditions.

Yerba Mate SE,
Tryethylxanthene,
Guarana SE,
Damiana SE,
Green Tea SE,
Ginger,
Kola Nut SE,
Shisandra,
Scutellaria SE,
Tibetan Ginseng SE,
Cocoa Nut SE,
Jujube,
Thea Sinensis Complex SE.

I have never heard of some of these and this is a new product on our market and cannot get the info I need. I would appreciate and your feedback.

I do not recommend that you take this product for weight loss. It contains herbs that can raise blood pressure and stimulate the heart and could aggravate some of your current health conditions. Please see a qualified health professional regarding weight loss information and help.
