Red Yeast Rice Extract appears to act in much the same way as prescription Statin drugs. This unfortunately means it can cause the same side effects. To date, studies have not specifically investigated the safety of red yeast rice in elderly people. However, elderly patients taking 1,200 mg per day of red yeast rice in an 8-week trial experienced no significant side effects.†
Red Yeast Rice Extract should not be taken with cholesterol prescription (statin) drugs. Do not take if you are under age 20. Avoid if you have liver disease or are pregnant or lactating.
