Sorry for the delay.


According to the drug interactions database, glutathione does not have any interactions with bleeding or clotting activity, and so it should not be a issue with ptt or INR.


This is what is listed in the database


"Reported Interactions:


Drug/Nutrient Interactions: Acetaminophen, alcohol

Nutrient/Nutrient Interactions: None known


Effects on Bleeding : None reported"

After reading many different references on the web including PDR. There was one reference that stated a possible side effect of Angioedema. Any comments or statements. Or can you refer me to some sources for further study?
