Pleurisy (Asclepias tuberosa)



Interactions

Pleurisy/Drug Interactions:
  • Antidepressant agents (SSRIs, MAOIs)Antidepressant agents (SSRIs, MAOIs): Based on anecdote, pleurisy may alter amine concentrations in the brain and interact with antidepressants.
  • Cardiac glycosidesCardiac glycosides: The roots of the pleurisy plant have been found to contain glycosides of ikemagenin, lineolon, pleurogenin, ascandroside, cardenolide, uzarigenin, coroglaucigenin, and corotoxigenin (2; 3; 4). Some natural medicine textbooks say that pleurisy contains large amounts of cardiac glycosides; therefore, large doses should be avoided and pleurisy should be used cautiously in patients with cardiovascular conditions or taking cardiac glycosides.
  • DigoxinDigoxin: The roots of the pleurisy plant have been found to contain glycosides of ikemagenin, lineolon, pleurogenin, ascandroside, cardenolide, uzarigenin, coroglaucigenin, and corotoxigenin (2; 3; 4). Some natural medicine textbooks say that pleurisy contains large amounts of cardiac glycosides; therefore, large doses should be avoided and pleurisy should be used cautiously in patients with cardiovascular conditions or taking cardiac glycosides.
  • HormonesHormones: Based on anecdote, pleurisy contains estrogen-like compounds.

Pleurisy/Herb/Supplement Interactions:
  • Antidepressant agents, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)Antidepressant agents, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs): Based on anecdote, pleurisy may alter amine concentrations in the brain and interact with antidepressants.
  • Antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)Antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs): Based on anecdote, pleurisy may alter amine concentrations in the brain and interact with antidepressants.
  • Cardiac glycosidesCardiac glycosides: The roots of the pleurisy plant have been found to contain glycosides of ikemagenin, lineolon, pleurogenin, ascandroside, cardenolide, uzarigenin, coroglaucigenin, and corotoxigenin (2; 3; 4). Some natural medicine textbooks say that pleurisy contains large amounts of cardiac glycosides; therefore, large doses should be avoided and pleurisy should be used cautiously in patients with cardiovascular conditions or taking cardiac glycosides.
  • HawthornHawthorn: The roots of the pleurisy plant have been found to contain glycosides of ikemagenin, lineolon, pleurogenin, ascandroside, cardenolide, uzarigenin, coroglaucigenin, and corotoxigenin (2; 3; 4). Some natural medicine textbooks say that pleurisy contains large amounts of cardiac glycosides; therefore, large doses should be avoided and pleurisy should be used cautiously in patients with cardiovascular conditions or taking cardiac glycosides.
  • PhytoestrogensPhytoestrogens: Based on anecdote, pleurisy contains estrogen-like compounds.
