Lipidlowering Medications

Additive effects are theoretically possible — beneficial interaction is possible. Patients taking oats, oat milk or oat bran should be monitored, as medication requirements may alter. Conversely, two case reports exist of a reduced effect of lovastatin in patients taking 50-100 g oatbran daily (Richter et al 1991). As this is likely to be due to the fibre inhibiting absorption of the drug doses should be separated by 2-3 hours.

Clinical note — Do oats interfere with nutrient absorption?

Although the high phytate content of oats would indicate a potential for reduced absorption of trace elements such as zinc, calcium and iron, one clinical trial investigating the effects of oat bran on zinc absorption found no evidence of reduced absorption (Sandstrom et al 2000).
