Peppermint oil for IBS- constipation? contraindicated with one of the following drugs ? Xanax, Seroquel, escitalopram, Lamotrigine? Same Question Aloe Vera juice...

I would avoid: the Peppermint oil. It may decrease how quickly the liver breaks down medications causing an increase in the effects and side effects of such medications. Two of the medicines you take--Xanax and escitalopram--are metabolized by the liver/cytochromne P450 and could be affected by Peppermint oil. Aloe Vera juice may be a little safer but it also affects the cytochrome P450 pathways. I would avoid. ...Read more
