Would Taking Arnica or Belladonna for Pain Cause Any Side Effects or Conflict with Prescribed Medicines?

Arnica gel is a fantastic topical agent for sports injuries, muscle aches, stiffness, etc. so there are a lot of people that use it for various types of pain among other things. One really nice thing is that Homeopathic medicines really don’t interact negatively with other drugs or supplements, but there are some of the Arnica gels that have other herbal ingredients that might interact… so you would want to check the label for other herbal ingredients.

Both Arnica and Belladonna in Homeopathic remedies are perfectly safe to take as long as you follow the recommendations and warnings on the label. For example, if the symptoms persist or worsen to contact a healthcare professional… if it doesn’t get better after an injury, it may be more than the body can heal with these products alone.
