Hydralazine

En Español (Spanish Version)

Vitamin B6 - Supplementation Likely Helpful | Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) - Supplementation Possibly Helpful | Coleus forskohlii - Theoretical Interaction

Hydralazine causes dilation of the walls of blood vessels and is sometimes used to treat hypertension.

 

Vitamin B6

Supplementation Likely Helpful

Hydralazine is known to deplete the blood of vitamin B 6 . Taking B 6 supplements may prevent or reverse side effects of the medication. 1,2

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

Supplementation Possibly Helpful

There is some evidence that hydralazine might impair the body's ability to manufacture the substance coenzyme Q 10 (CoQ 10 ). 3 This suggests (but definitely does not prove) that taking CoQ 10 supplements may produce a beneficial effect.

Coleus forskohlii

Theoretical Interaction

The herb Coleus forskohlii relaxes blood vessels and might have unpredictable effects if combined with hydralazine.
