Menopause Home > Wild Yam Drug Interactions

At this time, wild yam does not have any known drug interactions. However, you should always tell your healthcare provider about all medications or supplements (including prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, vitamins, and dietary or herbal supplements) you take. Even though there are no interactions with wild yam that are known at this point, it is important to understand that wild yam supplementation has been studied very little in humans. It has certainly not been studied enough to rule out the possibility of drug interactions.
 
If you suspect a drug interaction between wild yam and a medication you take, let your healthcare provider know. He or she can help you investigate the possibility of the drug interaction. If your healthcare provider also suspects that an interaction occurred, he or she might want to report it to a medical journal, especially if it is a significant or particularly interesting interaction.
