Skullcap Drug Interactions
No studies have been conducted on whether other supplements or medications will interact with skullcap. Drug interactions may occur if skullcap is taken with drugs that have sedative properties, as the combination could increase the risk of severe drowsiness. Although there are no known skullcap interactions at this time, you should check with your healthcare provider or pharmacist before taking any medications with skullcap.
It is not known whether skullcap interacts with other supplements or medications. No studies have been performed to look for drug interactions between skullcap and medications (or other supplements). It is possible that medications that have sedative properties (medications that can make you drowsy) could interact with skullcap, perhaps increasing the risk of severe drowsiness.
It is also possible that there may be dangerous skullcap drug interactions that are not currently known. Therefore, it is a very good idea to check with your healthcare provider and pharmacist before combining skullcap with any other medication or supplement. It may not be possible for your healthcare provider or pharmacist to predict if an interaction might occur. However, he or she can help you decide if any potential interaction might be severe or not. For instance, an interaction with a non-essential medication (like a wrinkle cream) is probably not as serious as an interaction with a life-saving medication (such as a heart medication). If you take medications that are very important to your health or medications that are very sensitive to drug interactions, it may be a good idea to avoid skullcap until more is known about possible skullcap interactions.
