This answer was rated:

hallo, I wish to know if by taking Gotu Kola herb whilst also on medication of Epanutin 150mg daily and Mysolin 250mg daily if this does any harm?

Hello Rhoda,

My name isXXXXX and I will be helping you today.

Gotu Kola enhances the central nervous system depression and thus may cause sedation and impair the decision making capacity when taken with Mysoline. Gotu kola does not have any drug interaction with Epanutin.


Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
