A 48-year-old female asked:

Is there a reaction between plavix (clopidogrel) and green coffee bean extract?

Probably not: Please understand that green coffee bean extract is an unregulated herbal that has variable concentrations of caffeine in different formulations and no studies systematically searching for an interaction with plavix (clopidogrel). That said, there are no known interactions between Plavix (clopidogrel) and caffeine.

Do not waste your $: Do not waste your time with "weight loss supplements". Green coffee beans are just the latest in a long line of overhyped fads. If you want to achieve weight loss, reduce your carbs to a bare minimum, drink only water, eat lots of low starch veggies and increase your activity levels.
