- Clove is reported to have antiplatelet activity in vitro. Be cautious of use with anticoagulant/ antiplatelet medications.
- Grapefruit juice is known to affect the metabolism of several medications. Paracea Forte contains an extract of grapefruit. The flavonoid narigenin is the component of grapefruit juice known to have been associated with an effect on these medications. The narigenin content of the grapefruit extract in Paracea Forte is 0.1%, and at these levels, there is not likely to be a significant impact on the metabolism of these medications.
