Drug Information:
Evidence suggests that evening primrose oil may be effective for treating rheumatoid arthritis, injection site skin Reactions, and diabetic neuropathy, but is lacking to support its place in the treatment of atopic eczema/dermatitis syndrome, menopausal vasomotor symptoms, mastalgia, or multiple sclerosis. In combination with Vitamin D, evening primrose oil has improved glycemic and lipid profiles in women with gestational diabetes. Evening primrose oil has been administered orally in clinical trials at doses between 1 and 8 g/day in adults and 2 and 4 g/day in children. The typical content of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in the oil is 8% to 10%. Learn more
