Does anyone know if it's OK to take Cat's Claw (Uno del gato AKA Samento) while taking antibiotics? I know that some herbs can "cancel" out the antibiotics and since my father is on anti's recently for a tick bite, I want to make sure I'm not giving him the wrong advice.

Also if anyone feels like answering, ever time I do a search and put in the correct criteria, nothing ever comes up. Ie: I am searching "air hunger" and "Breathing", etc. I have to do a google search on google.com and that is the only way something comes up. If you have any pointers I'd appreciate it! I don't want to "repost" on air hunger and having a hard time breathing (me), but I can't find anything else. Thanks so much!!!

I was just researching samento online and several sites said it will not affect ABX but to be on the safe side, he should take it 2 hours apart. Be sure he starts with a low dose and works up slowly when he knows how it affects him.
