Are there any herbal medicines that cause low sodium levels?
Suspect complex interaction with herbal meds
Hi dear.Thanks for giving me an opportunity to address your query.
Both Elavil(Amitryptyline) and Trileptal(Oxcarbzepine) cause low sodium levels in approximately 1-2% of the patients.
Most herbal medication/supplements produce low sodium levels.Are these self medication or being prescribed by your MD?
I were to suspect a complex interaction of herbal meds with the others(Elavil or Trileptal) causing low sodium levels.
Hope this answers your query.
Get your doctor opinion about using herbs
Hi dear.Thanks for writing me back.
Vitamins and antioxidants normally do not interact with your antidepressant medicines. But I would discuss with herbal / ayurveda doctors to check whether or not it can be used together. My only concern would be the natural herbs sometime which might claim to have antioxidant effect may interact causing hyponatremia/low sodium.
Hope this answers your query. Get well soon.
Feel free to post me on this forum for any clarifications in the furture.
