I would like to know if there is any harm in taking 4 to 5 drops of Oil of Oregano everyday. I have COPD and I have found that it helps with my breathing. The prescription medications that I currently take are Lipitor 20mg, Pantaloc 40mg, Spiriva once a day, Advair 250 twice a day. I also have a puffer to use as needed. I am on oxygen all the time now. I take Usana products for vitamins supplements, antioxidants and CoQ 100.
Please advise as to the Oil of Oregano.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

this is not a well researched oil.

most likely 4-5 drops or oil of oregano orally daily is not harmful. if it helps your copd that is good.

you have to keep an eye on your cholesterol to make sure it doesn't go up. I see you are on lipitor.

it is a good idea to let your doctor know you are taking it as well.

let me know if you have questions.
