Additional Herbal Preparations

Friday 05 August 2016

Nine new herbal preparations have been added to the comedication list. Note, for many of these preparations, pharmacokinetic studies have not been performed and the clinical effect has been estimated based on in vitro findings. In addition, it is unclear whether in vitro results with extracts from one part of the plant (e.g. leaf) are representative of other parts of the plants (e.g. root, bark). These limitations should be taken into consideration when viewing interactions between herbal preparations and antiretrovirals.

The new herbal preparations are:

  • Aloe vera
  • Cubeb pepper (Piper cubeba)
  • Eucalyptus globulus
  • Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
  • Inula racemosa
  • Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
  • Malabar nut tree (Justicia adhatoda, Adhatoda vasica)
  • Menthol
  • Tumeric (Curcuma longa)
