    Where the drugs taken have no overlap with olive leaf side effects or therapeutic effects, it may be safe to take them both but this may be difficult to establish.

    Interactions are not likely to be documented in the near future as natural and drug-based therapies are philosophically different.

    Olive leaf may protect healthy cells from damage caused by radiation therapy for example, but normally physicians from one school are not well versed in the other and would not happily take responsibility for mixing the two.

    Common sense should be the guide based on the known traditional, anecdotal and potential researched effects of olive leaf extract.

    1. Olive leaf extract lowers high blood pressure.

    Do not take olive leaf extract while on blood pressure medication without consulting your physician. If he/she is agreeable, start off with small doses. A reduction in your other medication dosage may become necessary.

    This also applies if you wish to take olive leaf extract for a cold for example.

    2. Olive leaf extract demonstrates hypoglycaemic and antidiabetic properties in animals.

    If on diabetic medication, start with small olive leaf doses to gauge the effect and check with your physician beforehand.

    3. Olive leaf extract may increase the effect of blood thinners such as Warfarin as it tends to prevent blood platelets from sticking together. If on Warfarin or other blood thinners, check with your physician before taking olive leaf extract.
