Monograph Update: Boldo Might Interact with Tacrolimus

A case report shows that taking boldo with tacrolimus, a medication used to prevent organ rejection in people with organ transplants, might reduce the amount of tacrolimus in the body. This could decrease the effectiveness of tacrolimus and increase the chance for transplant rejection.

For more information about potential boldo interactions, please review our complete scientific monograph.
