Evening primrose oil for eczema
Treatment with oral evening primrose oil was found in research to give partial correction of an essential fatty acid abnormality associated with eczema (which is also known as atopic dermatitis).
There is mixed placebo-controlled evidence for evening primrose oil efficacy against eczema, but a meta-analysis of nine trials showed the best effects were against the symptom of itching, although the findings were sponsored by a manufacturer of evening primrose oil supplements
Another review has suggested a limited role for supplementation in some patients with eczema - those who do not use high-potency steroids. Evening primrose oil's effect was reduced in people who used steroids, although again the author of the analysis was working for a commercial producer
Eczema may be effectively treated with conventional medicines but complementary alternatives such as evening primrose oil and borage oil are tried by people who have inadequate improvement or fear side-effects.
A well-respected review of the evidence conducted by the Cochrane Collaboration concludes that evening primrose oil is no more effective than placebo at treating eczema, and can produce mild, temporary, mainly gastrointestinal side-effects.
Another review of the evidence has found mixed results, with the positive results being modest for both oral and topical forms of evening primrose oil treatments.
Evening primrose oil for menopause and premenstrual syndrome
There is limited research on evening primrose oil for menopausal hot flashes.
Hot flashes experienced by women going through the menopause have a number of non-hormonal treatment options but evening primrose oil does not offer evidence of effect1 - the one clinical trial before 2006 found no difference compared with placebo.
A more recent trial published in 2013 included only 56 menopausal women for six weeks of treatment with either evening primrose oil or placebo. The active treatment improved severity of hot flashes in this relatively small study.
There is no current evidence to support a role for evening primrose oil in easing premenstrual syndrome (PMS)1 - a systematic review of four small, low-powered trials found that doses of EPO ranging from 3 to 6 g daily were not effective in improving overall symptoms of PMS.
Some women have reported PMS symptoms being eased by evening primrose oil though - breast tenderness, feelings of depression, irritability and swelling and bloating from fluid retention.
