Abstract The increasing use of herbal products by patients with cardiovascular disease represents a clinical challenge to physicians. The use of herbal products is increasing in our society, and less than 50\% of patients using herbal products report this information to their physicians. In addition, physicians often lack the knowledge base for herbal medications to effectively counsel patients regarding adverse effects and potential herb-drug interactions. This article reviews Western and traditional Chinese herbs that are commonly used by patients with cardiovascular diseases, herbs noted to have adverse cardiovascular effects, and herbs that may potentially interact with commonly prescribed cardiovascular medications.
