Question: Drug interactions between pills (cipralex and another)?


 matrix_a - Sun Mar 09, 2008 10:58 am

Hi,

I'm taking "Cipralex" pill every day for a 1 month, and I want to try some penis enlargement pills of some company called vigrxplus.
and I needed to know for sure if could be any bad interactions or dangerous by taking them both simultaneously.

the penis enlargement pills are consist of the following herbal:

BIOPERINEĀ®
PIPER NIGRUM L

DAMIANA
TURNERA APHRODISIACA

TRIBULUS TERRESTRIS
PUNCTURE VINE

EPIMEDIUM LEAF EXTRACT
EPIMEDIUM SAGITTATUM

CUSCUTA SEED EXTRACT
SEMEN CUSCUTAE

GINKGO BILOBA LEAF
GINKGOACEAE

ASIAN RED GINSENG
PANAX GINSENG

SAW PALMETTO BERRY
FRUCTUS SERENOAE

MUIRA PAUMA BARK EXTRACT
PTYCHOPETALUM OLACOIDES

CATUABA BARK EXTRACT
ERYTHROXYLUM CATUABA

HAWTHORN BERRY
FRUCTUS CRATAEGI

I really need to know for sure, because it's not a game. and i'm shy to ask my doctor that question.

Thanks a lot!

User avatar Dear matrix_a:

Before I answer your question, I must first state that the use of herbal/natural products can be, well, unpredictable, because these products are not regulated by any supervisory agency. There may be impurities in the product, which may have inconsistent concentrations of the active ingredient from one serving to another.

Now, my best estimate is that the ginkgo biloba (GB) would be the best choice. This is because GB increases blood flow, everywhere. It should also be complimentary to the Cipralex, because of the increase in blood flow everywhere, including the brain, thereby helping concentration and general cognitive function. In depression, cognitive functions tend to be depressed as well.

Good Luck!
