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. and discusses the practical application of the ADME scheme and therapeutic index.

  1. William P.,

    fantastic course, will really help you in deciding on a treatment plan.

  2. Christina

    Because I went to school soooo long ago, I felt like I needed a little bit more review of the “basics”

  3. Patricia

    Was very interesting. Definitely understand why they interact now. Had a teacher who said “never to worry about interactions because herbs and drugs use two different mechanisms and never cross paths”. Glad I took the course. Although I don’t really feel any more confident about prescribing herbs to clients already on meds.

  4. Ruth

    The instructor chose as his top 10 drugs the most dangerous drugs, not the most widely used. In fact, two of the drugs he listed he said aren’t used much at all anymore. It would be helpful to me to better understand the drugs that I see all the time: levothyroxine, synthroid, gabapentin, metformin, oxycodone, various muscle relaxers, trazadone, etc. And given the wide use of cannabis-based products (both CBD and THC) it would be useful to get some insight on how those can be safely used and what dangers may be out there.

  5. Claudia

    There was a lot of information put into the two hours. I’m glad that I will have this as a resource

  6. Kimberly

    It was very in depth and at some times past the necessary scope of knowledge required

  7. julie
