  • St John's wort
  • nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Motrin)
  • blood thinners, such as warfarin (Coumadin)
  • anti-seizure medications such as mephenytoin (Mesantoin)
  • diuretics
  • blood pressure medications, such as verapamil (Calan) or Diltiazem (Cardizem)
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO inhibitors), such as phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate), isocarboxazid (Marplan), and selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar).
