Drug interactions: I found no interaction btwn Ciprofloxacin (prescription medication) & saw palmetto (dietary supplement) at http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=2046-0,672-332. Always tell your prescribing doc everything you take before accepting new medication. That way, s/he can check for interactions before prescribing. And ask dispensing pharmacist for his/her input, too.
