Is there any link between evening primrose oil and seizures?

Maybe

Convulsion
The research is currently a bit inconclusive on these issues. Some research suggests a link and other articles challenge the scientific method/conclusions of these papers. However, since there is possible link to an increased risk of seizures it is still currently recommended by most healthcare professionals & Evening Primrose Oil manufacturers that those with seizure disorders avoid using it.

Can you take evening primrose oil and cod liver oil together?

Probably

Fish_oil
Because they are likely absorbed similarly, I can fathom no reason why they cannot be taken at the same time.

Started taking evening primrose oil and my breasts are fuller. Nice but why?

Who knows

Side_effects
the data on evening primrose oil is spotty at best- some mixed evidence on its efficacy for treating breast symptoms, menopause and PMS- I've actually seen anecdotal evidence of decreased mastalgia (breast pain) but if you are enjoying this "side effect"- have no fear- i haven't seen any convincing evidence of its harm!

Started taking evening primrose oil and my boobs are really full-- why is that?

Shouldn't happen

Breast_abscess
It has been used to help with breast pain but should not cause breast enlargement or fullness. Perhaps there is something else in the supplement that you are taking. I would look for another cause for breast fullness. Evening primrose oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acids, essential fatty acids that are lacking in some people's diets. Always ask your doctor before taking supplements.

Dr. David Sneid answered:

Will taking both Evening Primrose Oil and Flaxseed Oil help with hypothyroidism?

NO!

Hypothyroidism
only BRAND NAME T4 replacement will help w/hypothyroidism. Besides, the two oils won't do anything but shrink your wallet, and primrose oil has potential toxicity. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams.

Is it safe to take EPO (evening primrose oil) and st johns wort at the same time?

Don't know

Fda
A problem with anything not prescribed by a Dr. is that we have NO idea what is in the substance you are taking.Please read the VERY small print on the bottle that states "This is not to be used for the treatment or diagnosis of any disease".Why is that statement there?Because the FDA,the oversight of drug safety in the USA, hasn't even looked at the product you are taking.Be an informed user.
