Q- Can herbs be used alongside prescription medication?
A- Most naturopaths and herbalists say yes. However, they also agree that you should always check with your healthcare professional before doing so, as many herbs have the same action as prescription drugs. For example, St. John's Wort & Kava Kava should not be combined with antidepressants; Ginkgo can act as a blood thinner, and is therefore not recommended for ones taking anti-clotting medications such as aspirin or coumadin.
