Homeopathy and Prescription Medication


 
Unlike medicinal Herbs, Homeopathic medicines can be taken without side effects or interactions with prescription drugs, though the homeopathy often works well enough that you don't need to take prescription drugs. 

Some conventional medicines, however, are so strong that they inhibit any action of the homeopathic remedy. In such cases you should discuss this with your health care provider and decide if he or she wishes to use the conventional or homeopathic medicine for your particular health condition. Never stop taking your prescription medication without first consulting your doctor.

The principal claim made by homoeopaths is that their treatment is safe, and this is true, provided that no serious disease has been overlooked and conventional treatment is not suddenly withdrawn and/or replaced with homeopathic care. As noted above, there are no dangerous interactions between homoeopathic medicines and conventional ones.
