I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and I'm on a vitamin cleanse Advocare 24 day challenge. Can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?
Not likely: The herbal parts of this regimen seem to include milk thistle, echinacea, and astragalus -- none of which should cause a problem with wellbutrin (bupropion). If you're also taking the fiber part of this plan, I suggest taking that separately from your medication so that absorption is as good as possible.
Need more info: Happy to address your concerns about safety taking "these" herbal supplements but you didn't tell us to which ones you are referring. Please elaborate.

Taurate) often helps. Zyflamend is a good product.See 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: There are no perfect treatments. Anti-viral and anti-fungals have been helpful in some patients. Herbal supplements like clove, thyme, and oregano which have anti-viral and anti-fungal activities could help if ingested. Topical vit d oil might be beneficial. Check blood 25-oh vit d 3 and see if it is low. Topical or oral coconut oil which is both anti-viral and anti-bacterial might be helpful.See 1 more doctor answer

By being careful: If you are taking any medicines, you need to check with your doctor before beginning supplements. Don't over do. More is not necessarily better, and is sometimes distinctly worse.

I was told I have melanosis coli. I take daily herbal supplements to help with chronic constipation. Is this bad?
Some herbs unsafe: The big concern here is that many herbs can interact with the pharmaceuticals used to prevent rejection. Certain herbs are known to be hazardous, but some may be safe.
