Can I Take Ashwagandha With Prescription Medicine
No: In general, not a good idea to take herbal supplments w/prescription medications ...Read more
Am on Ramipril 10mg and Amlodopine 5mg, can I safely take Ashwagandha supplement with these drugs please?
Should be ok...: Ashwagandha is frequently referred to as "Indian ginseng" and is an herb used in Ayurvedic healing. It belongs to the tomato family. It purports to relieve stress and promote good immunity. It reportedly interacts with immunosuppressant and sedating medications, not the anti-hypertensives you are taking. It should be safe to take, though as with all supplements, unproven as regards effectiveness. ...Read more
No bad reports: No problems are reported but that's not a guarantee. You might ask your Dr and certainly follow each one's directions. Pay attention to how you feel and be cautious but it should be okay. ...Read more

NothingPerfectlySafe: See: http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/withania_somnifera. Nothing is perfectly safe. Our bodies are open systems; majority (~55-62%) is water ; we need water in ; out to stay alive; yet water can also kill us, e.g. Acute water intoxication; pulmonary edema (cannot breath), etc. The issues are always dose/unit time, both acute ; chronic changes in behavior ; tracking outcomes, called clinical trials. ...Read more
Why????: (sigh) Why are people so willing to do things to their bodies they'd NEVER do to their cars? If a fuel additive sold at Pep Boys had as little evidence of efficacy as these herbals, you'd NEVER trust it in your gas tank. Think critically. Be skeptical. Look at FACTS. Acquire some real knowledge. Don't get taken in by every traveling medicine show or snake-oil salesman that comes down the pike. ...Read more
Can I take Ashwagandha to increase my height. I'm a 23 years old girl. I took 1/2 tsp of it to start with. Is there any other way to increase height?
If my son takes ashwagandha, will his height increase? He is 14 and his height is 5ft7. Have you ever seen increase in height with ashwagandha.
Taking ashwagandha 470 mg day/470 night for low cortisol-can I take small amount of lithium orotate for sleep?
Probably OK but Why: I guess the easy answer is that it is probably safe. However I am not quite sure I understand why you are doing this. Lithium orotate is very low dose formulation of lithium (a medication used mostly for bipolar or manic depression) that is available over the counter. It seems like an unusual choice to help you sleep. ...Read more
Is it safe to take ashwagandha while taking my prescribed 50mgs of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 4 or 5 days a week if so what's a good dosage and routine of the ash thanks?
Probably but no data: Ashwagandha interacts with CNS depressants (sedatives like sleep meds and benzodiazepines) and immunosuppressants (e.g., azathioprine and prednisone). There are no known interactions with vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Webmd notes dose of ashwagandha depends on age, health, and several other conditions and there is not enough scientific information to determine appropriate dose. Take care and be well. ...Read more
Hi, I take azathioprine for Crohn's and started taking ashwagandha supplement. Are there any contraindications? Thank you.
Possibly: Ashwagandha affects immune function but the immune system is complex & more research is needed. Some sites class it as an immune booster & caution that those with autoimmune disease should avoid it & warn about it theoretically interfering with the activity of drugs like azathioprine. Others state it may correct immune imbalances & help autoimmune issues. Basically no one knows for sure. See comment:. ...Read more
Talk to doc first.:
There is not enough evidence to say whether it will help with anxiety. Ginseng interacts with lots of other medications. And may cause acute seritonin syndrome, a bad thing. So talk to your doc first! See:

Ok: Neither one are MAO inhibitors. OK to take together. ...Read more
I an taking Holy basil, Passion flower, Sage and ashwagandha. Will any of these show a positive reading on a drug test?
No: I hope you're not spending too much money on this stuff. I'm glad you're interested in "natural healing", but think about getting with an evidence-based holist. Best wishes. ...Read more
I take 40 mg. Of citalopram daily. Can I take a supplement with ashwagandha, lion's mane, huperzine A, and Vit. D3?
You could: But that is an awful lot to start all at once. You wouldn't start 4 medications all together at once, I would not advise all those supplements at once either. Try to determine exactly what you expect each of these to do individually and then decide which seems most important to you and start that first. Get vita D levels before starting that one. ...Read more
If I take ashwagandha as a supplement and was prescribed vistaril, (hydroxyzine) but only take it occasionally when I need it for anxiety, is there an interaction?
Acetyl L-carnitine arginate safe to take with ashwagandha? Will it stimulate the thyroid too much?
Yes, no: It is quite safe to take these concurrently. Acetyl-L-carnitine arginate is not known to stimulate nor suppress the thyroid but has been shown to reduce symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Ashwagandha balances thyroid function, stimulating underactive thyroids while calming overactive thyroid. It is not known to overstimulate the thyroid. ...Read more
Am 18yrs old, I want to increase my height so am going to take ashwagandha and homeopathy, my parents are tall, my growth rate has stopped at 15 why?,
Hard to say: The hormones that trigger puberty also push the final growth spurt and eventually cause the growth centers to close. A single x-ray of your wrist/hand can be evaluated for open growth centers. If they are open you can grow more, if closed, nothing you take is going to re-open them and permit more linear growth. If you stopped growing at 15 you are likely finished. ...Read more
Can I take ashwagandha root pill together with the Synthroid (thyroxine) pill. I have under active thyroid and am taking 150 mcg of Synthroid (thyroxine) each morning. Thanks?
Is it safe to take a 675 mg pill of milk thistle, bacopa, tumeric, green tea and ashwagandha extract while taking statins?

I take lisinopril, ashwagandha, fish oil, and a multi vitamin daily and am experiencing hair loss. Could it be from this vitamin combination?
Talk to your eye doc:
There does not appear to be a problem, depending on other medicines you are taking, which may interact with it. But there have been no good studies about its effects.

Ashwagandha is a very safe and well-tolerated herb with many benefits that has been used for thousands of years. It has been subject to many research studies. While there is no specific research on it and glaucoma, there is no evidence it is harmful for those with glaucoma and is likely of some benefit. See http://oneearthherbs. Squarespace.

Of course: Especially if what's in the 'natural herbal pill' isn't really the 'exotic Indian herb that is so good for you.' Phony herbal medicines are a very common cause of liver damage and even failure. I trust other causes of liver damage were considered and ruled out. Best wishes. ...Read more
