How do herbs and chemical drugs react to one another?

Use Herbs with Caution

Herbs have medicinal strength just as chemical drugs do. Some herbs do not mix well with some chemical medicine prescriptions. If you want to try herbs for anything and you are using prescription drugs, check with your doctor, research on the internet, ask questions all over regarding possible mixture reactions. If after all of your research you are still determined to mix them, use small doses at first and note any changes in your body and mind.

If negative changes occur, however small, stop using the herb while you are using the prescription drug and for a few weeks after the doctor takes you off of the drug because your body will need time to use up all of the presription leftovers. Mixing drugs and herbs when they are opposed gives both treatments a bad name and will not help your health.
