Advecia Research:

Possible Interactions with: Saw Palmetto Extract 4:1 (Serenoa repens) (fruit)

Also listed as: Sabal serrulata; Saw Palmetto; Serenoa repens

Finasteride - There are no reports in the scientific literature to suggest that saw palmetto interacts with any conventional medications. However, because saw palmetto may work similarly to finasteride, it has been recommended that this herb not be used in combination with finasteride or other medications used to treat BPH.

Possible Interactions with: Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis) (leaf)

Also listed as: Camellia sinensis; Green Tea

If you are currently being treated with any of the following medications, you should not drink green tea or take green tea extract without first talking to your healthcare provider:

Adenosine - Green tea may inhibit the actions of adenosine, a medication administered in a hospital setting for an irregular (and usually unstable) heart rhythm.

Antibiotics, beta-lactam - Green tea may increase the effectiveness of beta-lactam antibiotics by reducing bacterial resistance to treatment.

Benzodiazepines - Caffeine (including caffeine from green tea) has been shown to reduce the sedative effects of benzodiazepines (medications commonly used to treat anxiety, such as diazepam and lorazepam).

Beta-blockers, propranolol and metoprolol - Caffeine (including caffeine from green tea) may increase blood pressure in people taking propranolol and metoprolol (medications used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease).

Blood Thinning Medications - Green tea should not be taken with warfarin, a blood-thinning medication, because the herb contains vitamin K and, thus, can render warfarin ineffective.

Similarly, green tea and aspirin should not be mixed because they both prevent platelets from clotting. Using the two together, therefore, may increase your risk of bleeding.

Chemotherapy - The combination of green tea and chemotherapy medications, specifically doxorubicin and tamoxifen, increased the effectiveness of these medications in laboratory tests. These results have not yet been demonstrated in studies of people, however.

On the other hand, there have been reports of both green and black tea extracts stimulating a gene in prostate cancer cells that may cause them to be less sensitive to chemotherapy drugs. Given this potential interaction, black and green tea (as well as extracts of these teas) should not be taken while receiving chemotherapy for prostate cancer in particular.

Clozapine - The anti-psychotic effects of the medication clozapine may be reduced if taken less than 40 minutes after drinking green tea.

Ephedrine - When taken together with ephedrine, green tea may cause agitation, tremors, insomnia, and weight loss.

Lithium - Green tea has been shown to reduce blood levels of lithium (a medication used to treat manic/depression).

Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) - Green tea may cause a severe increase in blood pressure (called a "hypertensive crisis") when taken together with MAOIs used to treat depression. Examples of MAOIs include phenelzine and tranylcypromine.

Oral contraceptives - Oral contraceptives can prolong the amount of time caffeine stays in the body and may increase its stimulating effects.

Phenylpropanolamine - A combination of caffeine (including caffeine from green tea) and phenylpropanolamine (an ingredient used in many over-the-counter and prescription cough and cold medications and weight loss products)can cause mania and a severe increase in blood pressure. The FDA issued a public health advisory in November 2000 to warn people of the risk of bleeding in the brain from use of this medication and has strongly urged all manufacturers of this drug to remove it from the market.
