DẦU CÁ (FISH OIL)


INTERACTIONS WITH MEDICATIONS, HERBS, SUPPLEMENTS, AND FOODS

interactions with medications

Moderate

Be cautious with this combination.

Birth control pills (Contraceptive drugs)

There is some evidence that birth control pills might interfere with the triglyceride-lowering effects of fish oil.

Some of these drugs include ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel (
Triphasil), ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone (Ortho-Novum 1/35,Ortho-Novum 7/7/7), and others.

Medications for high blood pressure (Antihypertensive drugs)

Using fish oil with drugs that lower blood pressure can increase the effects of these drugs and may lower blood pressure too much.

Some medications for high blood pressure include
captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDIURIL), furosemide (Lasix), and many others.

Orlistat (Xenical, Alli)

Orlistat (Xenical, Alli) might keep the beneficial fatty acids in fish oil from being absorbed by the body. Taking fish oil and orlistat (Xenical, Alli) at least 2 hours apart may keep this from happening.

Minor

Be watchful with this combination.

Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs)

Using fish oil with medications that slow clotting may cause bleeding.

Some of these drugs include
aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dalteparin (Fragmin), dipyridamole (Persantine), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), warfarin (Coumadin), and others.

interactions with herbs and supplements

Herbs and supplements that might slow blood clotting

High doses of fish oil seem to slow blood clotting. Taking fish oil with other herbs that slow clotting might cause bleeding in some people. These herbs include angelica, clove, danshen, garlic, ginger, ginkgo, Panax ginseng, red clover, turmeric, willow, and others.

Vitamin E

Fish oil can reduce vitamin E levels. Researchers aren't sure whether fish oil keeps vitamin E from being absorbed from food or whether it causes the body to use up vitamin E faster than it should.

interactions with foods

There are no known interactions with foods.
