Alzheimers Home > NADH Drug Interactions

While no NADH drug interactions are known at this time, this doesn't mean that interactions can't occur. No studies have been conducted to see if NADH would interact with other supplements or medications. If you are taking medications that are susceptible to drug interactions, NADH should probably be avoided until more is known about how it could affect such medications.

NADH Drug Interactions: An Overview

NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydrate) is a naturally occurring molecule found throughout the human body. It is also used as an ingredient in dietary supplements. It is not known if NADH interacts with other supplements or medications. No studies have been performed to see if medications or other supplements could cause drug interactions with NADH.

There may be NADH drug interactions that are not currently known. Therefore, it is a good idea to check with your healthcare provider or pharmacist before combining NADH with any other medication or supplement. While your healthcare provider or pharmacist probably will not be able to predict if an interaction might occur, he or she can help you decide if any potential interactions might be severe or not. For instance, an interaction with a nonessential medication (like an acne cream) is probably not as serious as an interaction with a life-saving medication (such as many heart medications).
If you take medications that are important to your health or medications that are sensitive to drug interactions, you may want to avoid NADH until more is known about possible NADH drug interactions. If you take medications that are particularly sensitive to drug interactions, your healthcare provider may want to monitor you more closely (using blood tests, if necessary) to see if any interaction occurs.
