I have been using Lavender for years and years, for a variety of different purposes. The greatest has been pain relief (legs, ankles, toes, fingers, etc). Recently, a friend of mine showed me her finger joints and how painful they were. She used "straight" lavender and was absolutely amazed: the pain was gone. Now, the question. She is concerned because she takes Plavix. I researched and found a number of sites showing the lavender can effect choesterol and blood pressure lowering drugs, if you are taking aspirin, Plavix, ibuprofen, etc.  What's "the scoop" on lavender and drug interaction?  Kitty

Some drug interactions with lavender are:

  • Chloral Hydrate interacts with LAVENDER

    Chloral hydrate causes sleepiness and drowsiness. Lavender seems to increase the effects of chloral hydrate. Taking lavender along with chloral hydrate might cause too much sleepiness.

  • Sedative medications (Barbiturates) interacts with LAVENDER

    Lavender might cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Medications that cause sleepiness are called sedatives. Taking lavender along with sedative medications might cause too much sleepiness.

    Some sedative medications include amobarbital (Amytal), butabarbital (Butisol), mephobarbital (Mebaral), pentobarbital (Nembutal), phenobarbital (Luminal), secobarbital (Seconal), and others.

  • Sedative medications (CNS depressants) interacts with LAVENDER

    Lavender might cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Medications that cause sleepiness are called sedatives. Taking lavender along with sedative medications might cause too much sleepiness.

    Some sedative medications include clonazepam (Klonopin), lorazepam (Ativan), phenobarbital (Donnatal), zolpidem (Ambien), and others.
