Mullein

I've been reading about this herb and dabbled with it a little bit and it did seem to help. I spoke with my doctor about mullein he had never heard of it but isn't aware of any interactions between my current asthma and other medications and this herb and there doesn't seem to be any interactions listed online so I got the all-clear to try it if I want. Most people drink 4 Cups of Tea a day. That's a bit hard for me to do so I decided to try the capsules. The brand I ordered has lots of good reviews on Amazon of people that have breathing ailments being helped by taking this for a few months. Does anybody in this group have any experience with this? In any form of the plant? Thank you.I ordered this off of Amazon

  1. Hi Eric,

    Mullein Leaf is an expectorant, meaning it will help loosen mucus so it can be coughed up easier. It is also believed to help coat irritated mucus membranes. Very little data is available on this supplement, and because it is a supplement it is not regulated by the FDA.

    I recommend talking with your doctor to make sure this won't interfere with any of your current medications or conditions. I'm glad you found something that seems to be helping!

    1. yes I spoke with my doctor about it and he said to try it see how it goes. I started today and so far the only problem I had is that I didn't have enough to eat this morning with just an apple with taking it. Going to try to have more of a breakfast tomorrow as I don't have any appointments so hopefully that'll help that it doesn't bother my stomach as much. Other than that it seemed to be okay today.
