Kelly Anne Spratt, D.O., Director of Women's Cardiovascular Health at the University of Pennsylvania Presbyterian Medical Center, answers your questions.

Q. Do you know of a Web site for checking out the possibilites of having adverse reactions from prescriptions while also taking herbal/natural remedies?

A. Check out PDR.net, the Web site sponsored by the publisher of the "PDR" -- the Physician's Desk Reference, the main resource for health professionals regarding all drugs. (Note: you must register to access some information, and need to subscribe to the service to access some parts of the site.)

There is also a companion volume titled PDR for Herbal Medicines, which discusses not only each medicinal plant but also interactions between herbal and prescription medicines. This sounds like a resource you might want for your own bookshelf.

Any time you want to mix an herbal remedy with a prescription medication, however, the safest course of action is to check with your doctor, even if you find a printed source that says it's okay.

Go to PDR.net
