Drug Interactions With Epimedium

Epimedium Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Epimedium is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
High Blood Pressure Medications
Theoretically, combining Epimedium with a high blood pressure medicine might increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure (hypotension). It is probably best to check with your healthcare provider before using such a combination.
 
Anticoagulants or Antiplatelet Medications
Theoretically, taking Epimedium with medications that "thin" the blood may increase the risk of bleeding. At this time, it is not known how significant these interactions may be. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Epimedium with any of these medications. This is probably most important for potent prescription anticoagulants or antiplatelet medications (such as heparin or warfarin) and less important for some other medications (such as NSAIDs), although problems are theoretically possible with any medication with "blood-thinning" properties.
