Anti- arrhythmic medications may antagonize the effects of aconite and increase the risk of cardiotoxicity or other side effects. Patients taking anti- arrhythmics or other heart medication should consult with a qualified healthcare professional, including a pharmacist.

Aconitine may lower blood sugar levels. Caution is advised when using medications that may also lower blood sugar. Patients taking drugs for diabetes by mouth or insulin should be monitored closely by a qualified healthcare provider. Medication adjustments may be necessary.
