Every site I've seen that sells aloe supplements makes sure to mention how aloe is 100% all natural so it cannot affect any other medications. I'm actually taking aloe w/ comfrey capsules on top of my prednisone and I haven't had any extra problems from it.

On that note, does anyone know a recommended dosage for aloe pills? My dad just tells me to take 3 a day before bed but I'm in the midst of a flare right now so I'm sure it'd be better if I took more?
