I'm looking into taking acai berry as a supplement. Will it have any negative reaction with the Tegretol I am taking for epilepsy?
There's no research that I have found about any interaction between acai berry and tegretol.
There is, however, great research that says acai berry is pretty much worthless for all of the things it has been touted for. Don't waste your money on these products. There are lots of great berries that are great for you and a whole lot cheaper.
