Herbal supplements: Safety first

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you take herbal supplements, include a dose of safety in your routine: 1. Don't exceed the recommended dosages. 2. Tell your doctor what you're taking. Some herbs may interfere with other drugs or have other harmful effects. 3. Avoid herbal supplements if you're pregnant or breast-feeding, unless your doctor approves.
