Did You Know…
Many people don’t tell their doctors what alternative therapies they’re using, but it is important to do so. Some herbs can cause serious side effects when mixed with prescription and over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin, blood thinners or blood pressure medications. Older adults may metabolize medications differently so safe doses may not be established.
