Is it okay to take L-Arginine while taking Losartan, Nicardipine & Metropolol? I saw on Dr. Oz that L-Arginine was a good supplement to take if one has high blood pressure. I also saw that Hibiscus tea was good for lowering blood pressure. Is it ok to tak

This should be fine, but with a few caveats. First. L-arginine is an unproven dietary supplement. It may be helpful, but there is no convincing evidence. And just because it is a natural supplement does not mean it is necessarily safe. If you haven't already, a more effective and natural way to help your blood pressure would be to cut out sodium and increase your intake of fresh foods. Your combination of drugs indicates to me that you have a substantial blood pressure problem. You should discuss these supplements with your physician and your pharmacist to be sure there are no interactions, and always let healthcare professionals know what supplements and over-the-counter medicines you are taking in addition to your prescriptions. Although uncommon, in some cases these ordinary supplements and OTC meds can cause negative drug interactions with your important prescriptions.

What is L-Arginine good for?

Arginine

....is something your body normally makes, but you can be deficient if you don't have enough of the building blocks. Symptoms of deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver. There is some evidence it may be useful for claudication (pain in your legs with exercise due to poor circulation). It's used for lots of other things, but without good evidence.

Does l arginine help against cancer?

Adjunct only

Stomach_cancer
I don't believe it will do anything for you. The proposed mechanisms make no sense, and the whole thing is cultish. Interestingly, there's a counter-cult based on taking NO arginine in the diet. I wouldn't give money to a pill company that misled me. If you want to try arginine, don't give up on conventional treatment.
