After taking saw palmetto for prostrate maintenance for decades, I stopped taking it after being advised by a pharmacist that it was a bleed risk when taking anticoagulants. I discussed this with my EP and although he could not find anything wrong with taking it, he said if I wanted to take the pharmacist recommendation that was fine too. Being the cautious type, I stopped the saw palmetto.
My PCP then prescribed Flomax, but I discovered it was causing arrhythmia and aFib events, so I stopped taking it.
I am now on Tikosyn and Pradaxa (changing to Eliquis soon) and am considering resuming saw palmetto and am interested in anyone who may have experience in this regard,
