Neem Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when neem is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Diabetes Medications
Theoretically, combining neem with diabetes medications might increase the risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Check with your healthcare provider before taking neem with a diabetes drug, as you may need to monitor your blood sugar more closely.
Theoretically, neem may stimulate the immune system, making immunosuppressants less effective. This might be dangerous since some immunosuppressants are life-saving medications (such as medicines used to prevent the rejection of an organ transplant). Check with your healthcare before taking neem if you take an immunosuppressant.
Theoretically, neem could increase the level of lithium in the blood (and, therefore, increase the risk of side effects of lithium). Do not take neem with lithium without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
