Enzyte Drug Interactions

There are a number of medications that could interact with Enzyte. Drug interactions can cause excessive bleeding, affect the way liver enzymes metabolize other medicines, or reduce the effectiveness of the medications. Some of the medications that may cause negative Enzyte interactions include aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, diabetes medicines, and methadone.

An Introduction to Enzyte Drug Interactions

Even though Enzyte® is a natural product, it can potentially interact with several medications. In fact, Enzyte may cause significant interactions with many medications, too many to list entirely in this article. Most Enzyte drug interactions fall into the following categories:
 
  • Interactions that can cause excessive bleeding
  • Interactions that affect the way liver enzymes metabolize other drugs
  • Other miscellaneous drug interactions.
     
Enzyte Interactions and Bleeding
Theoretically, Enzyte could decrease the ability of blood platelets to stick together, due to its saw palmetto, ginseng, and ginkgo biloba content. Until more information is available, it should be assumed that combining Enzyte with medications that increase the risk of bleeding could lead to dangerous problems (such as internal bleeding). Some of these "blood-thinning" medicines that may lead to Enzyte drug interactions include:
 
 
 
 
    • Alteplase (Activase®)
    • Reteplase (Retavase®)
    • Streptokinase (Streptase®)
    • Tenecteplase (TNKase®)
 
  
Do not combine Enzyte with any such medications without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision. It should be noted that there have been reports that ginseng could actually make warfarin less effective (which is the opposite of what would be expected), increasing the risk of blood clots. Due to the unpredictability of interactions between Enzyte and "blood-thinning" medications, your healthcare provider may recommend against combining them at all or may recommend increased monitoring to detect any problems.
