Abstract

Natural products in popular medicine have been used for hundreds of years and persists nowadays. However, the idea that these products are exempted of toxicity turns the use of herbs to be larger and indiscriminate. This work is a review of interactions that can happen with concomitant use of Hypericum perforatum L. (St. John's wort) and Piper methysticum F. (kava-kava) with medicines that can result in serious toxicological effects including fate.
