Look at the Label

To use alternative remedies safely: Don't take herbal remedies or dietary supplements that don't include dosing recommendations, an expiration date and the manufacturer's name, address and telephone number on the label, says the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Don't take an alternative remedy and a prescription medication for the same condition. Talk to your doctor before taking any supplements.
