1. Will Strauss Products react with my current medication?
In over 30 years that Strauss formulas have been on the open market, worldwide, there has never been a negative interaction with any prescription or non-prescription medication.
When a customer is taking medications Strauss recommends that they take the Strauss formulas either 1 hour (capsule form) or 30 minutes (liquid form) before taking the medication or 1 hour (or 30 minutes) after taking the medication. The emphasis is to not take the medication immediately before or after taking the Strauss formulas. This is not because of any worries about interaction but rather to maximize the effects of the Herbal formula and the medication.
As always, we recommend you check with your personal doctor and pharmasists when adding new supplements.

9. Are there any side effects?
Heartburn : The cayenne and/or garlic in the Strauss Heartdrops may cause heartburn. The longer you hold the drops in the mouth the less spicy they are when swallowed. Start with 1-5 drops a day and slowly build up the recommended amount. Eating 1 tablespoon of homemade sauerkraut (made wth salt only, not with wine or vinegar) 15 minutes before taking the drops may eliminate the heartburn. Eating 1 heaping tablespoon 3 times per day on an empty stomach may help rebuild the stomach lining and help repair ulcers.
Detoxification: Some people may experience detoxification when using Strauss Heartdrops. These toxins may leave the body through pores in the skin and provoke temporary skin irritation like a rash or pimples. You may also experience diarrhea or an increase in bowel movements, increased urination,
headache, dizziness, nausea and/or gas.
All of these are quite likely to occur during detoxification, signs your body is expelling toxins. If this becomes uncomfortable, reduce the Strauss Heartdrops amount to as little as 1 drop a day (do not completely stop taking) until the detoxifying stage is complete. A modification to your diet and/or habits may be required to reduce or stop the influx of new toxins. Once this stage is over, add 1 or 2 drops per day until you are comfortable taking the entire serving.
Cholesterol Levels: During the first few months expect your cholesterol level in your blood to rise since this is the first place your cholesterol will go when removed from your artery walls. Then cholesterol level will drop to normal. During this time, continue on with Strauss Heartdrops at the present serving size. If your cholesterol levels do not normalize after 6 months, even after increasing your serving as directed, you may have an under active thyroid.
Blood Pressure: In rare circumstances, a person's blood pressure may elevate temporarily. Blood pressure should normalize after 60 days while taking Strauss Heartdrops.
