Speaker: Lise Alschuler, ND This presentation provides an overview of the mechanisms which underlie drug/herb interactions. We explore methods to determine when drug/herb interactions present clinically actionable cautions and describe strategies to minimize the risk of such interactions. Finally, examples of the current state of evidence for drug/herb interactions for some commonly recommended botanicals including St. John’s wort, milk thistle, echinacea, turmeric (and others) are reviewed.
