Just wondering if anyone takes Echinacea? I have some tea right now for my throat and they also make a blend with Echinacea and I have never taken that before.
Or maybe someone knows a site that I can check herbs that interact with medicines? I tried some but herbs don’t come up as a medicine….
Here is the brand I am using http://www.traditionalmedicinals.com/?title=seasonal+products
I am currently drinking the throat coat because I have laryngitis and it helps a lot! (someone with CD at work told me about slippery elm bark tea that she uses so I figured the throat coat would be safe because slippery elm is the main ingredient)
I am thinking of getting the seasonal tea sampler, (or at least the one with Echinacea) which has Throat Coat®, Organic Echinacea Plus®, Breathe Easy® & Gypsy Cold Care®
Thanks for your input!!!

I did the throat coat when I had a 20 day cold and lost my voice for 18 of those days. I didn't do it until the last 4 days cause I forgot about it and wished that I had drank it sooner. Um I asked the gi the same ? cause I also wanted to take EmergenC for extra vitamins with that and he said as long as I didn't do it EVERYDAY for forever that the occasional taking of it (like when you get sick) would be fine.
Just like love pink says. All doctors have diff beliefs.
thanks everyone! I will probably pass on the echnecia tea. I will keep drinking the throat coat cause it really helps me and is pretty safe.
