Overview

Meyler's Side Effects of Herbal Medicines, named to Doody's Core Titles for 2013, is a derivatrive work based onthe acclaimed Meyler’s Side Effect of Drugs, Fifteenth Edition. This book summarizes the adverse effects of a large range of herbal medicines and the active ingredients that they contain. It includes extensive lists of the families of plants that are used as herbal medicines, including the Latin names of genera and species as well as the common names of individual plants. It features not only herbal medicines but information on important compounds such as tropane alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, nicotine, and pyrolizidine alkaloids.

The book is divided into three separate sections:

  • Family - Each monograph is organized under a family of plants (for example, Liliaceae)
  • Genera - The various genera that are included under the family name are tabulated (for example, the family Liliaceae contains 94 genera)
  • Species - In each monograph, some species are dealt with separately (for example, in Liliaceae, four species are included under their Latin names and major common names)

Each monograph includes the following information:

  • Alternative common names
  • Active ingredients
  • Uses - both traditional and modern
  • Adverse effects
  • References

Drug names are designated by their recommended or proposed International Non-proprietary Names (rINN or pINN); when those are not available, clinical names or brand names are used.

The material is drawn from the fifteenth edition of the internationally renowned encyclopedia, Meyler’s Side Effects of Drugs, and the latest volumes in the companion series, Side Effects of Drugs Annuals.

This volume is critical for any health professional or homeopathic practitioner with an interest in herbal medicines.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Increasing global interest in herbal medicines creates a serious need for truly objective data, not only on their efficacy, but also their side effects and interactions. The encyclopedic Meyler's Side Effects volumes and their associated Annuals have since 1977 done much to meet this need. Now, with the publication of Meyler's Side Effects of Herbal Medicines this unbiased evidence is made available to a much broader audience - superbly documented and indexed. Wherever herbal medicines are widely used, this volume deserves to be readily accessible. - Prof. M.N. Graham Dukes University of Oslo, Norway.

This edition gives a systematic view of adverse effects of herbals and has been published as a reference to health professionals and homoeopathic practitioners in understanding the effects of herbal Drugs. The book is up to now the only drug guide that includes clinical case studies and expert analyses. The volume contains monographs on individual herbal products structured in the following manner: Plant family, Genera, Species, Alternative common names, Active ingredients, Uses (including traditional and modern uses), Adverse effects and References. The material collected from clinical case reports and some systematic clinical studies shows, that herbal medicines have the potential to elicit the same type of adverse reactions as synthetic drugs. "Side Effects of Herbal Medicines" is a book which can be recommended as a valuable reference book for all pharmacists, doctors in private praxis and hospitals, health professionals and homoeopathic practitioners. Further this book offers extensive information on herbal medicines for anyone with an interest in scientifically solid phytotherapy.

--Prof. Dr. Hans D. Reuter, Koln
