Abstract

The continuing popularity of complementary medicine has led to the frequent appearance of new products in the marketplace. Non-herbal supplements are now a popular choice for patients seeking relief from a variety of medical conditions. As with herbal medicines, there are concerns about the safety of these products in those with physical illness. Clearly, consultation-liaison psychiatrists will encounter patients using non-herbal products or inquiring about them. This article seeks to provide knowledge about the risks and benefits of non-herbal supplements that consultation-liaison psychiatrists are likely to encounter.
