Increasingly, patients seeking acupuncture and herbal care may already be on a variety of western pharmaceuticals. It is essential that acupuncturists understand the fundamentals of possible herb-drug interactions prior to prescribing any herbal formulas for patients who are already taking western medications. Unexpected side effects from herb-drug interactions are a real and often devastating possibility. Ensure the safety of your patients and your practice with an understanding of possible herb-drug interactions.
In this class, Dr. John Chen, recognized authority in both western pharmacology and Chinese herbal medicine, author, and faculty of the USC School of Pharmacology and many TCM colleges, shares with you the most commonly seen herb-drug interactions and drug-herb interactions so that when you are prescribing herbal formulas to patients, you are aware of possible interactions with the medications they are taking. In addition, Dr. Chen also discusses the safe and defensive practice guidelines to minimize side-effects, adverse reactions, and herb-drug interactions.
