Stockley’s Herbal Medicines Interactions: A Guide to the Interactions of Herbal Medicines 2nd Ed

Stockley's Herbal Medicines Interactions: A Guide to the Interactions of Herbal Medicines 2nd EdBook Reviews: This first edition of Stockley’s Herbal Medicines Interactions is an exciting new addition to the Stockley family of products, and one that has been several years in the planning and execution. When researching Stockley’s Drug Interactions the authors had noticed the growing wealth of experimental data on herbal medicines, which does not fall within the brief of Stockley, which is primarily a clinically based reference work. However, it seemed somewhat of an omission to overlook what is obviously valuable information in what can almost be considered a new field of drug interactions. the authors therefore reached the point where the authors decided that it was worth producing a book dedicated to this information; however, little did the authors realise what a journey the authors be taking ourselves on.

Herbal medicines are, more than ever, receiving attention, both from the public and healthcare professionals alike, with many countries now undertaking registration schemes for traditional medicines. However, healthcare professionals still freely admit their lack of knowledge in this area, and surveys suggest that patients often rely on friends and family for advice about herbal medicines. Never has there been a more appropriate time to advise healthcare professionals so that they can provide balanced, helpful advice to patients wishing to take herbal medicines with their ‘conventional’ treatments. Our aim, as ever, has therefore been to critically evaluate the published literature and present it in a familiar, easy-tohandle format, so that the busy healthcare professional can quickly access the information and apply it to their clinical situation. This publication attempts to answer the same questions that the authors address in Stockley’s Drug Interactions, namely:

  • Are the drugs and substances in question known to interact or is the interaction only theoretical and speculative?
  • If they do interact, how serious is it?
  • Has it been described many times or only once?
  • Are all patients affected or only a few?
  • Is it best to avoid these two substances altogether or can the interaction be accommodated in some way?
  • And what alternative and safer drugs can be used instead?
