July PSA

Herbal/Prescription Drug Interaction Awareness

July is Herbal/Prescription Drug Interaction Awareness Month. Many people believe that “natural products” are by their very nature safe.  However, that is not necessarily true.Herbal medications have potential health consequences when taken alone and these increase when combining herbal and prescription medications. In addition, herbal medications are not tested or regulated by the FDA; concentration and ingredients lists may be not be present and can change with each bottle received.  MAPA reminds you to share with your PA, and all your Health Care Providers, a complete list of all prescription, over the counter and herbal products you are taking – not just in July but with each encounter.

We recommend these National Institutes of Health websites as valuable sources of information:
