Hello, Edith! How are you?

I'm sorry, but the Tumeric is a supplement, not an actual medication, so it has not been evaluated for possible interactions with actual prescription meds.

Have you tried asking your prescriber? They may know more.

Are you on any other medications?

Thank you so much for the reply Verwon. Am on Leracandipine 10mg and Omeprazole 20mg. Have just started with the Tumeric caps - 1 daily cap of 400mg. Had a blood test and liver enzymes were slightly elavated so trying the Tumeric to see if it helps bring them back to normal. Also using the spice in some meals. Tests to be repeated in 8 weeks.
Regards Edith

Hi Edith, from what I'm seeing Turmeric should be taken with caution if you are on any drugs which thin your blood (anticoagulant) because Turmeric exhibits these same effects. Some examples include Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Clopidogrel, etc. It's always a good idea to double check the prescription labels and to confirm with your doctor that your medications don't thin the blood, since too much of that can increase the chances of bruising and/or bleeding. I hope this helps and best wishes!

Hi Roy. Many thanks for your input. Looks like I am okay then as I am not on
blood thinners or anticoagulants. This is a great forum and I am glad to
have found it. Think I will be making returns.
