Drug-Drug and Herb-Drug Interaction-A Comment

  • CO Esimone

Abstract

Clinically relevant drug-drug interactions may be pharmacodynamic or pharmacokinetic. And herbal medicinal products are becoming increasingly popular. Drug interactions can be in vivo or in vitro. Pharmacodynamic outcomes take such forms as Additive, Synergistic, Antagonistic or Indifferent. The paper reviews and presents drug-drug and herb-drug interactions of public health importance in the face of growing patronage of trado-medical products, often purported to be without side-effects.

Keywords: Pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, in vivo, in vitro
