Overview

With an increasing number of patients combining herbal treatments with prescribed medications, reliable information on herb/supplement and pharmaceutical interactions is much needed. This portable reference is organized alphabetically by drug name and features an entry for each drug-herb/drug-supplement combination that has a proven interaction. Each entry is rated on a scale of 1 to 4 to show the severity of the interaction and includes information on related drugs, an interaction summary, a discussion of the interaction, management suggestions, and references. In addition to the core material, there are also several helpful appendices on interactions by herb or supplement, nutrient depletions, and drug-herb add-on depressant interactions.

• Evidence-based content includes the most up-to-date, current research on herb/supplement and pharmaceutical interactions.
• A unique rating scale uses scientific evidence to grade the level of interaction expected.
• References are included for each drug-herb/drug-supplement combination.
• A logical organization enables the reader to find information quickly.
• Several appendices provide information on interactions by herb or supplement, nutrient depletions, and drug-herb add-on depressant interactions.
