May cause gastrointestinal adverse effects in some individuals. Berberine may increase bilirubin levels. Berberine displaces bilirubin from albumin and increases total and unbound bilirubin concentrations.
DRUG INTERACTIONS: Berberine appears to undergo phase I hepatic metabolism. There is preliminary evidence that berberine might inhibit cytochrome P450 3A4, 2C9, 2D6 enzymes. Therefore, watch for an increase in the levels of drugs metabolized by these enzymes in patients taking berberine.
