Patient discussion about drug interaction
Q. Is there any possibility for drug interactions when bipolar drugs and herbal drugs are taken together. My mom is on lithium. Recently she tried some herbal treatment as it’s said to have no side effects. Is there any possibility for drug interactions when bipolar drugs and herbal drugs are taken together.
Q. Can certain fruits/veggies make Ritalin less effective? I've heard this about oranges and lemons - is it true? How about other produce? How much does it weaken Ritalin? Will taking a higher dose resolve the problem? (I currently take 10mg morning and 10mg afternoon)
THIS IS ONLY A GENERAL ADVICE - I haven't seen you or checked you, so if you have any concerns than you should consult a doctor.
