I’ve been taking forskolin for a little over a week and my question is does forskolin cause problems with your kindeys ? I am also taking amlodapine and lasix for my blood pressure and I take a Dailey women’s vitamin and I have had some pain in my left kidney. In any of the research has there been any kind of studies to support this?
Deborah, I’m not a doctor but I’m reading about forskolin for weight loss. You need to talk to your doctor BEFORE you take another dose of forskolin! Forskolin should not be taken with blood pressure medications since forskolin lowers blood pressure. In reading about forskolin, I saw something in reference to kidney issues.Forskolin may not be something you can take with your currant medical issues. Hope this helped!
I recently started taking forskolin. I also take catapress for blood pressure. Should I avoid using this medication?
Hi Janelle – Thanks for your message!
Based on my quick search online there have been no studies examining interactions between Forskolin and Catapress that I can refer you to. It would be best to speak to your physician to determine whether these two products can be used safely together.
I just started taking forskolin several days ago and notice I’m having more frequent and looser bowel movements. Is this because of the purported increased metabolic changes?
Forskolin. It looked all good until I got to low blood pressure…..I was told a few years ago by a doctor that I have abnormally low blood pressure…..is it an advisable supplement?
I have experienced a similar issue as indicated above – looser and more frequent bowel movements. Should I stop using the product or is this to be expected?
[email protected]—yes, i have frequent bowel movements and real loose. Should I STOP USING ULTRA TRIM FORKOLIN? REPLY TO ME REAL SOON.
How long can one take Forskolin?
I am also worry about the Forskolin not reacting well with my blood pressure medication… Anyone with a experience about that?
I started taking Forskolin about three days ago. The first day I had loose bowel motions and today I have blood in my urine.
I have stopped taking Forskolin as the risk to my health is too high.
I have been taking this (although not every day) for a little over three weeks. I have now stopped altogether because of the effect on my bowels, which was very dramatic! Sorry to be so ‘graphic’, but this turned my bowel movements to liquid and, whenever I have taken the capsules, have suffered gastric pain.
what is the exact age group of people who can use this medicine?
Must be an adult or teenager. There are a few side effects heart burn, lowers your blood pressure, if you take high blood pressure medicine ask your doctor if you can use it.
Wow, that was some great information. I knew Forskolin was a great product. I’ve been taking it since 2001 with Guggulsterone (Brown Resin) and I dropped weight. I love this supplement. It works great.
I also started taking Forskolin. 4 days ago.
Also wanting to lose a few pounds.
I purchased 2 different brands.
Cardiovascular Research Ltd from the vitamins store-it has 10% – 250 mg.
I took first day and did notice slight change in stools. A little looser. 2nd day took the same brand in a.m. And took second brand in evening.
Second brand was from California products. It has 20%-250mg.
Again stools not so bad.
3rd day switched to California products A.M. and P.M and noticed very loose stools. Almost by evening more like run to the bathroom stools. Also stomach cramped on one side.
Fourth day went back to weaker brand Cardiovascular Research ltd.
Have not had loose bowl movement all day.
But also found today was also first day not craving food. Really not even hungry at all. Strange
Only ate one meal at early dinner.
I do have some sort of mild reaction though.
Anyone one else experience itching? I notice I feel itchy on my head , neck, back etc.
Well I’m wondering if it has any effect with my other prescription drugs or not.
I take pramapexal for restless leg. And tramadol for back pain.
I’d like to stick it out but with caution of course.
I have lower blood pressure about 110/70. Minimum. Exercise- walking 30 min and every other day do exercise video- Zumba or ball exercise tape for 45 min.
According to the Natural Medicines Databse, there is not a recorded interaction between Forskolin and Pramapexal or Tramadol, but this does not mean that it might not affect how these medications work. You should speak to your prescribing doctor to determine if this combination is safe for you.
Forskolin has been shown to lower blood pressure in some studies.
Here is what the Natural Medicine’s Database says with regards to side effects:
Coleus is generally regarded as safe, as very few reports have documented adverse effects; however, only a few short-term trials have assessed its safety in a small sample size of patients. No long-term safety data were found in the available literature search. Inhalation of forskolin may cause sore throat, upper respiratory tract irritation, mild to moderate cough, tremor, or restlessness.”
do not mix coleus with Tramadol. Coleus acts on the CNS much like an on both GABA and Serotonin pathways and so does Tramadol. You should not mix the two, unless you to pull unintended Whitney effect?
Depuis le 3 octobre 2015 je prends 2 gélules de FORSKOLIN par jour, 1 le matin 15mn avant de déjeuner et 1 en milieu d’après midi et je bois 1 l d’eau par jour.
J’ ai 68 ans. Mon poids de début 107 kg. A ce jour j’ai perdu 7 kg mais cela fait 3 semaines que mon poids ne bouge pas. Je ne peux pas faire de sport.
Pouvez-vous me dire pourquoi je ne maigris plus alors que je m’alimente pareil qu’au début du régime.
j’ai un traitement de 4 mois, donc jusqu’au mois de février. Je devrais perdre 15 kg.
Merci de me répondre.
Ronds et rondes du monde, cessons de nous laisser délester… de notre argent. Je prends de la Forskolin depuis 1 mois et la seule chose que j’ai perdu, c’est beaucoup d’argent ! Pour le prix, vous pouvez acheter un bon laxatif du commerce pour 20 ans. Et l’efficacité est la même !
HOLA !!! MIRA MI PREGUNTA ES LA SIGUIENTE : ¿ COMO SE DEBE TOMAR LA FORSKOLINA?, ES DECIR ANTES DE UNA COMIDA DESPUÉS DE LA COMIDA? SI SE HACE ACTIVIDAD FISICA COMO SE DEBE TOMAR SI ANTES O DESPUES DE LA ACTIVIDAD? GRACIAS
tengo la misma pregunta se toma antes de los alimentos o que ?
I have been takingForskolin for several months, I really like it energy,appetite, Blood pressure good.
However I have developed a Bacteria in my Bladder and on antibiotics, what is your take on this? I hope to continue. Thanks for your opinion.
Hello, my name is Maria and I also talk about forskolin. It is new for me so I am reading a lot of this product in web sites for more information. I have a web called laforskolina and I will be very grateful if you can tell me some advice about this topic.
Thank you very much for this post
Got it this week and about to be day 3 tomorrow. No complaints yet and haven’t had any cravings. Looking forward to end my week to see if there is any changes. :)
i have hadd headachs and very tired with muscel pain is this a side effect?andy body else with this problem taking forkayskolin 125 mg.
Okay so me and my daughter are wanting to try losing some weight but she’s only 16. We don’t really have time to work out and I’d never resort to giving my child any medication or vitamin for her to lose weight but I’ve heard good things about Forskolin and I just wonder if it would be safe for both me and my 16 year old daughter
Thanks for your comment. Forskolin does have some positive effects for weight loss, but it has not been studied as a dietary supplement in individuals under 18. While supplements like Forskolin can be used to support a weight loss program, the greatest results will come from dietary changes and increased activity.
I always give up after a week or two when trying a new supplement, I would rather not give up on this seeing as how I’ve witnessed people have good results. I’ve been taking Forskolin for a week now and have had a headache every single day but the first day. Has anybody had this reaction? If so is there any thing I can do or take to try and get this to stop? Anybody have any good results?
Anybody taking foreskolin while on calcium channel blockers? I take 180mg Cardizem CD. What are the side effects?
