    Default chinese herbs

    FuFang Shan Zha Jiang Zhi Wan is a chinese herb to help with weight loss. Does anyone know of adverse reactions to this Chinese herb? I take Zocor, Avapro and Femara as prescribed. Wonder if this herb will cause problems.

    Read the warnings posted at these web sites. The medications you take are all metabolized by the liver. taking this herb my interfere with that process and that can cause HUGE problems especially with the zocor. talk to your doctor before starting the herb (he will tell you not to use it). Since it seems like FuFang Shan Zha Jiang Zhi Wan is a laxative, it may not be absorbed and just stay in the intestines and what i mentioned is not a problem. However, you would have to find some creditable sources to tell you this before you should use it.
