Adverse Reactions

Insufficient reliable information is available.

Significant Interactions

Controlled studies are unavailable, but interactions are theoretically possible with some medicines.

Since slippery elm forms an inert barrier over the gastrointestinal lining, it may theoretically alter the rate and/or extent of absorption of medicines with a narrow therapeutic range (e.g. barbiturates, digoxin, lithium, phenytoin, warfarin). The clinical significance of this is unclear. Separate doses by 2 hours.
