Are the any interactions between milk thistle and Prozac (fluoxetine) and/or clonazepam?

If the enzymes are inhibited by the milk thistle, then the level of the drugs will be higher. Prozac (fluoxetine) is one such drug. Clonazepam levels can be reduced if taken with milk thistle. ...Read more

Can i take holy basil with celexa and synthroid (thyroxine)? Will this cause any interactions?

Can i take holy basil with celexa and synthroid (thyroxine)? Will this cause any interactions?

It might slightly speed elimination of Celexa but this is not likely clinically significant. Holy basil is one of my favorite herbs, with many benefits; it's calming, anti-inflammatory, supports adrenals, lowers blood sugar. See http://www.Holy-basil.Com/6865.Html. ...Read more
