The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in collaboration with the American Medical Association has developed an education program consisting of three videos to help physicians and other healthcare professionals understand how dietary supplements are regulated and provide information to patients about their benefits and risks.
This video reviews the risks of taking dietary supplements, including supplement-drug interactions, laboratory test interference, and common hidden drug ingredients. The video also discusses potential adverse events associated with supplement use and how to report them to FDA. The video concludes with tips and tools for talking to patients about dietary supplements.
