Can I Take My Medicines With Bromelain?

Bromelain Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when bromelain is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Certain Antibiotics
Research suggests that bromelain might increase the level of amoxicillin or tetracycline in the blood. This might increase the risk of tetracycline or amoxicillin side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking bromelain with tetracycline or amoxicillin.
Anticoagulants or Antiplatelet Medications
Theoretically, using bromelain with medications that "thin" the blood may increase the risk of bleeding. At this time, it is not known how significant these interactions may be. Check with your healthcare provider before taking bromelain with any of these medications. This is probably most important for potent prescription anticoagulants or antiplatelet medications (such as heparin or warfarin) and less important for some other medications (such as NSAIDs).
