Phosphatidylserine Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when phosphatidylserine is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
It is thought that phosphatidylserine may increase acetylcholine levels. This could potentially decrease the effectiveness and/or decrease the side effects of some anticholinergic medications. Check with your healthcare provider before combining an anticholinergic medication with phosphatidylserine. In many cases, this potential interaction may be insignificant or perhaps even beneficial (if anticholinergic side effects are decreased); however, it is also possible that this interaction could cause significant problems.
Because phosphatidylserine may increase acetylcholine levels, it may increase the risk of side effects due to medications that have cholinergic effects. Do not combine phosphatidylserine with a cholinergic drug without checking with your healthcare provider first.
It is possible that not every drug interaction with phosphatidylserine was discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the phosphatidylserine interactions that may apply to your specific situation.
