Coleus +BCP: hello~ I did a literature search on this drug. It comes from the root of an unpronouncible plant. Its has been used through the ages, to treat anything from erectile dysfunction to heart failure. It has never been subjected to a double blind trial and only article I could find was from Ayevedura practitioners. I dont think it would interfere with BCP, but what about everything else?
