Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: ethanol and kava
Talk to your doctor before using kava. Products containing kava may cause liver problems, and taking them with alcohol can increase the risk.

Also avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. Call your doctor immediately if you have fever, chills, joint pain or swelling, unusual bleeding or bruising, skin rash, itching, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, pale stools, and/or yellowing of the skin or eyes, as these may be signs and symptoms of liver damage.
