Are there any interactions between Petadolex and Diltiazem?

Are there any interactions between Petadolex and Diltiazem?

Unlikely: Petadolex is purified butterbur, and is not likely to cause problems with metabolism of a calcium channel blocker in most patients. Am unaware of any issues secondary to this combination, unless there is a rare cytochrome mutation which would affect metabolism in the liver, well under 5% of all patients. So, do not worry. ...Read more

Is Petadolex safe to take with Pseudotumour Cerebri! ?

Butterbur extract: Is safe for migraine but has little use in the management of pseudotumor. You should consider going on medication for this condition (none of the meds listed will help) I suggest you see a neurologist. ...Read more

Are "enzymatic therapy Petadolex Pro active" and regular "petadolex" the same thing?

Are "enzymatic therapy Petadolex Pro active" and regular "petadolex" the same thing?

See below: Petadolex contains the herb Butterbur, and is used to prevent migraine headaches. The literature suggests it is fairly effective for this indication. From what I can discern, Petadolex and Petadolex Pro Active are the same. ...Read more

Is Petadolex safe during pregnancy? I have migraines and idiopathic intercranial hypertension 7 weeks pregnant

Is Petadolex safe during pregnancy? I have migraines and idiopathic intercranial hypertension 7 weeks pregnant

Weighing risks: After reading up on the history of petasites (butterbur) used for migraine headaches, as an obstetrician gynecologist I would be cautious using petalodex and would weigh the potential risks and benefits carefully. https://www.neurology.org/content/78/17/1346/reply ...Read more

I get a lot of migraines monthly, what are the best non-prescription drug remedies as i react negatively to medications with all their side effects?

I get a lot of migraines monthly, what are the best non-prescription drug remedies as i react negatively to medications with all their side effects?

See below: Do otc remedies work? You bet! have seen amazing responses to butterbur (petadolex), but also, consider riboflavin, feverfew, co-q-10, and magnesium. Dosing is a bit complicated, but worthwhile. Although a standard med, consider Botox injections also. Please discuss this with your physician, . ...Read more

I'm taking butterbur for migraines does this supplement have any side effects I should know about?

I'm taking butterbur for migraines does this supplement have any side effects I should know about?

NOT REALLY: I have extensively used purified butterbur in form of petadolex, and have never had much comment about any side effect except one patient said it left a flavour of grass in his mouth, and one lady said when she belched it smelled like hay. Otherwise, about 80% improve without any major issues. ...Read more

Thinking of doing the abc diet, no what to do and all that, but what are the side effects?

Thinking of doing the abc diet, no what to do and all that, but what are the side effects?

Agree w Dr. McGee: With the Ana Boot Camp Diet would anticipate possible side effects like malnutrition, fatigue, overly rapid weight loss, dizziness, low energy level, loss of large % of muscle mass – including heart muscle, problems with sleep, electrolyte imbalances, cold sensitivity, depression, paranoia etc. It may also be the start of a pattern of unhealthy eating. ...Read more

How much maximum onion one can eat in day without any side effects?

How much maximum onion one can eat in day without any side effects?

Variable effects: Different people have different tolerances for foods like onions, even though they're very nutritious (as per dr. Fowler)! eat them ; you'll be getting lots of flavonoids including quercetin that help your immune system http://tinyurl.Com/kfpegph several servings a week can decrease risk of cancer. To specifically decrease oral ; esophageal cancer risk, eat 1/2 cup/day in some form. Bon appetit! ...Read more
