If you are taking any prescription or over-the counter pharmaceutical, never take herbal remedies of any kind without first consulting a medical doctor who is experienced in alternative medicine. The interactions between herbs and modern drugs can be dangerous, even fatal. Some herbs can potentially make a prescription drug ineffective. Others can heighten or even greatly multiply the effect of modern pharmaceuticals.

Here is a list of places where you can do your own research about the potential interactions between herbs and pharmaceuticals:

The U.S. National Institutes of Health’s “Herbs At A Glance” service is perhaps the premier place to find the history of medicinal herbs, uses, known drug interactions, and information about modern scientific studies. No one should take any medicinal herb without consulting the information and warnings available here.

http://nccam.nih.gov/health/herbsataglance.htm The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database offers “Unbiased, Scientific Clinical Information on Complementary, Alternative, and Integrative Therapies” and is operated by the Therapeutic Research Center, which is funded by pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and others who pay for subscriptions. The information they provide is vast and fascinating. They offer drug interaction warnings, effectiveness ratings, information on clinical studies, a searchable database about how specific herbs interact with specific diseases, and more. Naturaldatabase.com

MedlinePlus is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, and provides a guide to herbs and supplements, including informtion about potential drug interactions.

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/herb_All.html Webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/default.aspx -- This website includes a list of the potential interactions and side effects of medicinal herbs.
