At this time, it is not known whether it is safe to take other medications or supplements with hoodia. Interactions may potentially occur that could increase or decrease the level of hoodia (or the other drug) in your blood. Since there is currently no information available about hoodia interactions, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist before taking any other drugs.
It is not known if hoodia interacts with other drugs, supplements, or foods. Hoodia has never been studied in combination with other drugs or supplements, so it is impossible to predict whether hoodia can safely be taken with other drugs or supplements.
There is some evidence that hoodia is metabolized in the liver. This means that the liver breaks down or changes the molecules of hoodia. Any substance that is metabolized in the liver has the possibility of affecting other drugs (or to be affected by other drugs). Therefore, it is possible that hoodia may increase or decrease the level of other drugs in the blood or that other drugs may increase or decrease the level of hoodia in the blood.
Currently, absolutely no information is available about hoodia interactions. If you take any other medications or supplements, please talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about hoodia drug interactions that may apply to you. Some medications are so sensitive that even very small changes can cause disastrous effects. If you are taking any such medications, your healthcare provider may choose to monitor you more closely, just in case hoodia interacts with these medications.
