Natural medicines

Learn more about vitamins, herbs, and supplements.

Many people think that just because a remedy is natural, it must be safe. But when something is strong enough to have an effect, it's also strong enough to have side effects — and possibly interact with other medications.

We've teamed up with the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database to bring you reliable information so you can make smart decisions about taking vitamins, herbs, and other supplements.

The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database gives you the tools to:

  • Find safety and effectiveness updates for each product and ingredient
  • Check for interactions between natural products and other medications
  • Look for herbs and supplements that have been verified by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Dietary Supplement Verification Program
  • See whether a natural product is effective for your condition
     


Launch the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database tool to learn about natural medicines and drug interactions.
