Possible Interaction: Atorvastatin and Ginkgo Biloba Whole

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

This study suggests that GBE slightly decreases the plasma atorvastatin concentrations, but has no meaningful effect on the cholesterol-lowering efficacy of atorvastatin.
GBE administration, AUC0–48, …–∞ and Cmax of atorvastatin were reduced by 14.27% (p = 0.005), 10.00% (p = 0.03) and 28.93% (p = 0.002), respectively; Vd/F and CL/F of atorvastatin were increased by 31.95% (p = 0.017) and 6.48% (p = 0.044).

In contrast, repeated administration of Ginkgo biloba extract for 14 days slightly reduced atorvastatin AUC, possibly as a result of the induction of OATP1B1-mediated hepatic uptake and subsequent biliary excretion [16].
