Can my husband drink Hibiscus Tea if he is on Warfarin. He take 5mg. daily. His INR has to be 2.0 to 3.0...Thank you?

Not sure: I couldn't find anything specifically about HIBISCUS tea, but tea in general can both antagonize warfarin (lower the INR) and also promote bleeding by interfering with platelet function which won't show up in the INR. That said, I'll bet a lot of people on warfarin drink tea, so if he loves tea, I'd say use it cautiously and monitor the INR. ...Read more

I drank hibiscus tea and felt nauseaus after. I wanted to vomit and so I did. I felt better instantly. Is that just my body's way of releasing toxins or should I be worried?

I drank hibiscus tea and felt nauseaus after. I wanted to vomit and so I did. I felt better instantly. Is that just my body's way of releasing toxins or should I be worried?

Don't be worried: because your body took care of the issue. Hibiscus tea is quite safe, even has some health benefits like reducing blood pressure. Plus, it's tasty!

Can I drink hibiscus tea while breastfeeding my almost 2 month old baby??

Stay away: A lot of herbal tea ingredients aren't recommended due to unknown effects. I'm sure the occasional bit of tea isn't any harm at all but I wouldn't drink them constantly without confirmation from your pediatrician and just stick to straight black or green tea. Hibiscus is on the list because, I believe, it can influence estrogen. ...Read more

Hi there. Will dexedrine decrease the efficacy of depo provera (medroxyprogesterone)? Will hibiscus tea decrease the efficacy?

Hi there. Will dexedrine decrease the efficacy of depo provera (medroxyprogesterone)? Will hibiscus tea decrease the efficacy?

Don't think so: Umm, there aren't too many approved uses for Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) that I know of. Is this really what you are taking? I don't think it would interfere with the action of depo provera, (medroxyprogesterone) but it could certainly help contribute to a stroke. Hibiscus tea will not interfere. ...Read more
