Herbs with High Blood Pressure Medications
Answered by: Christine Dennis
Question From: Denise

I take two different blood pressure meds, Diovan 160 mg and Metoprolol 12.5 once a day. Also Lovastatin 20 mg once a day. Can I take the following items with my meds:

milk thistle + pomegranate 250 mg

liquid aminos -- in capsules, there are 18 different ones.

oxy - cleanse for colon

I will be 50 in April. I had a hysterectomy at the age of 35, and am going through menopause for approx. 8 yrs. now. One ovary was left which helped a lot for a time. I don’t rest at night, weight gain. I also will be taking multivitamin and calcium - magnesium 500/250. I thought I would do the colon cleanse first before starting the other. I hope you can help me with information.

I do not see any obvious problems with the combinations you are taking but it would be best to consult in person a herbalist in your area. Your medications you are taking and your symptoms suggests that your body is having/had a hard time copying with stress. You might want to look at ways of helping your body cope better with stress thus addressing the underlying cause of some of your health problems. Please see below for more information:
