Overuse of Herbal and Dietary Supplements

Overuse of Herbal and Dietary Supplements | Balancing act | Scoop.it
Herbal and dietary supplement use is prevalent. Medication reconciliation should include a careful review of herbal and dietary supplements, including medical and nonmedical harms and benefits. The use of shared decision-making is recommended to integrate these findings into a patient-centered treatment plan. A case of an 80 year old man taking 50 supplements (over $35,000 annually) is reviewed and a teaching point about herbal and dietary supplements is discussed.

This case study presents an example of the excessive and inappropriate use of dietary supplements, which can present challenges akin to those recognized in polypharmacy. The strategy highlighted for the physician to review the literature and then present the case regarding risk & benefits and costs to the patient regarding supplements is certainly reasonable but frequently ineffective since patients often are committed to "natural" therapies and believe they are safe and effective.  Furthermore, patients often think physicians are inclined to discredit these therapies.  In my practice, the use of fish oil supplements is the best example of a therapy with no demonstrated cardiovascular benefit and possible harm, There is $12 billion spent annually on fish oil alone.
