Can I take Lactobacillus acidophilus and evening primrose at the same time with my prescriptions?

I take Pentasa and Azathioprine for my Chron's Disease, but I want to take acidophilus and evening primrose as well to help in a more natural way and eventually to not take prescriptions at all. Can I take all these pills at the same time or will it cause a bad reaction?

Both of these should not be a problem to take with your medication - you should definitely monitor your intake of the primrose oil as too much can cause abdominal pain or headache. See below for info


Although as mentioned previously you should speak to someone educated in the field RHNC/RNC/naturopath etc. to help you get on a program to help you with the Chron's disease naturally. A pharmacist may/may not be able to answer your question correctly; pharmacists go to school to learn about drugs not nutritional supplements.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any more questions - see link below for contact info.

Reply:You never know since they are not FDA regulated. It would take years and years for them to test everyone prescription with every herbal supplement.

I would talk with your doctor, although he might say the same thing it is better to be safe then sorry!
Reply:The Acidophilus should be fine its just like eating some yogurt. I'm not sure about the evening primrose. I suggest checking out some information from the web, finding out what the primrose has in it that gives it it's beneficial qualities. If you can't find it there talk to a holistic practitioner and ask your doctor. Heck do all of these. It is helpful to ask the advice of someone who uses herbal therapy as a profession, since they have already done the research on the active properties of these herbs. Good luck, and good health to you! Blessed Be!
Reply:Your pharmacist will be able to tell you. Call the number on your prescription bottle.
