Check Your Vitamin and Supplement Reactions

Mixing the wrong vitamins or herbs with some medications may lead to problems. An herb with a medication for example could cause a drug to become less effective, too effective or lead to various and serious side effects.
You should avoid these combinations:
  • Zoloft and Saint-John's-wort - this can cause nausea, shaking and confusion. Taking Saint-John's Wort alone may lead to sunburn. It can as well affect birth control pills effectiveness, heart drugs and other medications.
  • Coumadin and ginkgo biloba or too much Vitamin E - it can cause bleeding problems and/or bruising.
  • Antihistamins and Valerian (an herb) - can cause intense drowsiness.
NOTE: Make sure to read your drug, herb or supplement warning labels. Ask your doctor/pharmacist whether he/she knows of any herbs or supplements that could interact with the medications you take.
