Abstract

Concomitant TRM use with conventional therapies without disclosure may interfere with the potency of treatment regimen and result in drug interactions. Inclusion of alternative medicines on the National Health Insurance Scheme's drug plan will fortify monitoring and professional administration of TRM. Information as regards TRM use needs to be incorporated into clinical and medical practice, hence the need to prioritise patient-physician communication.
