Can rhodiola interact with sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa)?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Probably not bad

I had to look up rhodiola as that was one i had never heard of.
There are no reasons, at least theoretically, that the two should be a problem. I did a literature search and there are no articles in the medical literature looking at rhodiola and sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa). There are some laboratory papers that suggest rhodiola should be helpful in pd, but i could not find any clinical studies in people.
