I need to take propranolol for my chronic headaches. I also have chronic lyme and would like to take stephania. In Healing Lyme you state that stephania is not recommended for people on beta blockers. Why? What would happen then? I already take andrographis, cat’s claw, resveratrol and olive leaf extract, as well as serrapeptase and nattokinase. Regards.
Calcium channel blockers (which stephania is) and beta-blockers are not usually taken together because of potential additive effects; they both have effects on the heart and the two together can sometimes be too much.
