    The truth is that books like these are not as informative as they could be because there has been so little research done on interactions between pharmaceuticals and herbs. Most herbs in this book are listed as having “no known side effects”. However, the more heavily researched herbs like St. John’s Wort and WIllow have a lot of information listed. I bought this book because I began a new medication and my doctor didn’t know about any potential side effects with herbs. To my surprise this book stated that it actually has a negative interaction with black tea. I’m happy to have this book, despite the lack of research on most herbs, and will keep it in the house as a reference book.

    I’d seen this book in a couple of physicians’ offices, and with the various meds my family takes as well as supplements, I thought it would be a good thing to add to the bookshelf. It is a nice reference to have to make sure that nothing you take, or take it with, is a dangerous combo. The fact that it includes what nutrients a drug or supplement or herb might interact with is worth the purchase alone. While the printout that comes with our prescriptions might list some dangers, they generally don’t list all. It’s nice to have a reference at hand to verify and hopefully prevent any complications. I also like that the contributors come from multiple medical disciplines.

    This book does, however, needs to be updated as it hasn’t been revised since 2006 (though I may just not be finding the latest version). Many drugs and supplements have made it to market since then. Another wish would be to see this offered as well in a book maybe half the size – similar to the Merck Family Desk Reference. A large print version for those with visions issues might do well, also.

    I am glad that there is such a reference as the A-Z Guide to Drug-Herb-Vitamin Interactions, but I would like to find something with more entries. There were some products missing that I particularly wanted to check in all three areas. One thing I really would have liked to see was the reason why some combinations were unsafe. There is one antacid, for example, that I cannot take with a prescription that I use daily. Not only was it not listed as unsafe to use together as well as the side effects of such, it’s scary that there may be other ones missed, as well.
