Lithium interacts with HYDRANGEA
Hydrangea might have an effect like a water pill or “diuretic.” Taking hydrangea might decrease how well the body gets rid of lithium. This could increase how much lithium is in the body and result in serious side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are taking lithium. Your lithium dose might need to be changed.
