The District Director of Health for West Akyem, Dr Samuel Boateng, has warned the public against combining herbal concoctions with prescribed medications, citing potential complications that may arise from such mixtures.

Patients with non-communicable diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and sickle cell disease, are being urged to take preventive measures to avoid potential complications.

He highlighted the potential risks associated with the simultaneous consumption of certain drugs, adding that consuming such mixtures without professional guidance can have adverse effects on individuals also taking prescribed medications.

He advised patients, who prefer herbal medicines, to visit hospitals or certified health facilities, where herbal medicines can be given under prescription and supervision.
