General Interaction

General Interaction


Because ginkgo reduces the rate at which blood clots, people who are on anticoagulants or who suffer from clotting disorders should consult a doctor before taking this herb.

Ginkgo intensifies the blood-thinning effect of long-term aspirin use and may lead to excessive bleeding.

Several studies indicate that ginkgo increases blood pressure when combined with thiazide diuretics, a class of medications prescribed to control blood pressure. If you take a medicine of this type, consult your doctor or pharmacist before combining with ginkgo.

Insulin secretion can be affected by ginkgo, altering blood glucose levels in undesirable ways. Discuss with doctor before combining with insulin.

Use caution before combining ginkgo with trazodone, a modified cyclic antidepressant or "mood elevator" that works in a unique way. The interaction of the herb and the drug was associated with coma in a woman with Alzheimer's disease.

Consult your doctor before combining with prochlorperazine, an antipsychotic drug; ginkgo may cause seizures when combined with this drug, which lowers the seizure threshold.
