Vitamin E should be avoided when taking:
- Current research does not indicate that this supplement should be avoided when taking prescription drugs
Vitamin E should be used with caution when combined with:
- Blood thinning medication - (i.e. Warfarin and Coumadin), or other agents that affect the ability of blood to clot (Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs, Aspirin, etc.). Vitamin E in combination with these medications may increase risk of bleeding.
- Lipid-lowering drugs - Vitamin E in combination with other antioxidant vitamins (beta-carotene, C and selenium) may reduce the therapeutic benefits of combinations of statins and niacin. Monitor lipid levels closely for potential changes in drug efficacy if using these antioxidants while taking statins plus niacin.
- Chemotherapy Agents - High doses of antioxidants should be avoided during chemotherapy treatment until additional evidence is available.
