Interactions

Interactions with Drugs

Borage may have antibacterial effects against Helicobacter pylori. Use cautiously with antibiotics and antiulcer medications due to possible additive effects.

Borage may increase the risk of bleeding, especially when taken with drugs that increase the risk of bleeding, such as warfarin therapy.

Preliminary evidence suggests that borage may lower the seizure threshold. Use cautiously in patients with seizures or taking anticonvulsant medications.

Preliminary evidence suggests that borage oil may have anti- inflammatory properties. Use cautiously with anti- inflammatory medications due to possible additive effects.

Although not well studied in humans, gamma linolenic acid may decrease plasma triglyceride levels and may increase HDL- cholesterol concentration. Use cautiously in patients taking cholesterol- lowering medications due to possible additive effects.

Borage oil may alter heart function. Use cautiously in patients with heart conditions or taking cardiovascular medications.

Preliminary evidence suggests that gamma linolenic acid may alter immune responses. Use cautiously with other immunomodulators.

Concomitant nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory (NSAID) drug use may undermine borage oil effects; use cautiously.

Multiple cases of bleeding have been reported with the use of Ginkgo biloba, and fewer cases with garlic and saw palmetto.
