9 Drugs and 10 Herbs to Worry About

Course Overview

We may not be able to predict all drug-herb interactions, but we can determine potentials for interactions. This seminar examines how to approach these potential drug-herb interactions. A discussion of basic pharmacology, including the ADME scheme (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination) and the therapeutic index, form the foundation of this understanding. The participant will leave with real skills to assess potential interactions and the ability to determine which are important, which aren’t, and which may be in the future. Both the nine drugs and ten herbs most prone to drug-herb interactions will be discussed. These drugs and herbs are based on an evidence based approach.
