Herbal Drugs Medication
Safer, but . . . : Generally speaking herbals are much safer than pharmaceuticals, however certain herbs, just like drugs if taken in too high of a dose, too frequently or in the context of a specific medical condition can cause much harm. It is best to seek the advise of a trained herbalist in conjunction with your medical doctor particularly if you have an established medical condition. ...Read more

Yes they can...: Herbal drugs are not harmless like people commonly think. Most of them can cause side effects and also interact with other medications or foods as any other drug could. If you are planning on starting one please always consult with your doctor first. ...Read more

How to make multiple superficial face ulcers heals face,what are the best drugs for this situation and does mebo herbal ointment worth for that?thanks
Be careful: Most mds choose to use pharmaceutical drugs knowing these agents have been tested & their side-effects, interactions and benefits recorded. They also know the source of the drug & can rely on its purity & dosage. This is often less true with herbal remedies; that's why physicians are wary of them. Use the same degree of objective scrutiny with herbs as you do with standard drugs before deciding. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
R there any drugs for severe m.E? (i dislike drugs but uk nhs wont prescribe nutritiional/herbal/acupuncture type trtmnt on long tern basis..Only drug
Not exactly but: M.E. Is a diagnosis of exclusion. My experience is that most with it actually have chronic lyme with co-infections (but drugs are of limited help for that). Also, many are hypothyroid- even if their TSH is "normal" so thyroid hormone can help quite a bit. Many have intestinal parasites- not always easily diagnosed- many drugs can help these, but so can natural things like papaya seeds.See comment:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Work overloaded not sleeping well wife took me to ER vs my gp they gave me lorazapam. Why would they prescibe such a potent drug vs a herbal etc.
Family Medicine: This is the very reason so many in medicine are frustrated today. There was nothing in your history that required an emergency room. Your history is exactly why one has a family doctor. You need to have a relationship with your physician. They get to know you best. They can offer you options for treating your problems. Always start with your family doctor. I think you should get to them soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you rec some vitamins and herbal supplements or OTC drugs that can help kick heroine addiction?
There aren't any: The chances of an individual kicking on one's own is very, very low. Opioid withdrawal results in widespread pain, chills, aches/pains, diarrhea and vomiting, as well as anxiety and insomnia. It is usually too severe by day 2-3 for people to stand it, and they use again. Some meds can help a little (tylenol, motrin, pepto bismol) but real help means a doctor helping you. Please get into treatment. ...Read more
My daughter 27 years of age taking myclonic epilepsy drugs for last 17 years but no improvement kindly tell me some herbal treatment?
Sorry, no such Rx: There are no "herbal" or otc agents which work for what seems possibly to be juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. Not clear why she is not responding, but the best drugs are Depakote and keppra (levetiracetam). However, could also consider vagal nerve stimulator implantation. Suggest you get consultation from an epileptologist at a nearby medical school. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I went to a pharmacy to get treated of gonorrhea and the pharmacist directed me to go for herbal treatment rather. that thr is no good drugs for it?
Gonorrhea Treatment: In the summer of 2012, the CDC updated the guidelines again - recommending that all gonorrhea cases be treated with injectable, rather than oral, antibiotics. If a pharmacist sent you to the herbal section rather than referring you to be tested by a physician or clinic, then they ought to be reported. That is horrifying to me. I do hope you misunderstood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
