Peony

Peony

(Paeonia lactiflora)

Use(s) or Purpose(s)

  • Orally, peony is used for gout, osteoarthritis, fever, respiratory tract ailments, and for cough. Peony is also used orally for dysmenorrhea, polycystic ovary syndrome, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and for inducing menstruation or miscarriage. It is also used for viral hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, dyspepsia, to induce vomiting, muscle cramps, and atherosclerosis. Peony is also used orally for spasms, whooping cough (pertussis), epilepsy, neuralgia, migraine headache, and for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
  • Topically, peony is used for skin and mucous membrane diseases, and for healing fissures, especially anal fissures associated with hemorrhoids.

Risk Information

Caution(s) and Warning(s)
PREGNANCY : When used orally. Preliminary research suggests that peony can cause uterine contractions. However, other preliminary research suggests a combination of peony and angelica might be safe. Until more is known, avoid use.

Contraindication(s)

Peony might have antiplatelet, anticoagulant, and antithrombotic effects. Theoretically, combining peony with anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs might increase the risk of bleeding. Some drugs with antiplatelet or anticoagulant effects include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, indomethacin (Indocin), ticlopidine (Ticlid), warfarin (Coumadin), and others.
Peony root might reduce levels of phenytoin and potentially reduce the therapeutic effectiveness of phenytoin. It's theorized that peony root might affect cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C) enzymes, which metabolizes phenytoin. But there is evidence that peony root does not alter levels of losartan (Cozaar), which is also metabolized by CYP2C9. More evidence is needed to determine if peony root significantly affects other drugs metabolized by CYP2C9.
ANTICOAGULANT/ANTIPLATELET HERBS AND SUPPLEMENTS: Peony might have antiplatelet, anticoagulant, and antithrombotic effects. Theoretically, combining peony with other herbs and supplements that affect platelet aggregation or coagulation might increase the risk of bleeding. Some other herbs with antiplatelet or anticoagulant effects include angelica, clove, danshen, garlic, ginger, garlic, ginkgo, Panax ginseng, and others.
BLEEDING DISORDERS: Peony might have antiplatelet, anticoagulant, and antithrombotic effects. Theoretically, peony might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders ; avoid using.
SURGERY: Peony has antiplatelet effects. Peony might cause excessive bleeding if used perioperatively. Tell patients to discontinue peony at least 2 weeks before elective surgical procedures.

Known Adverse Reaction(s)
Orally, peony can cause gastric upset. Topically, peony can cause contact dermatitis.
