Can I receive TCM treatment while taking western medicine?

For most conditions, it is alright to receive both TCM treatment and western treatment simultaneously. You are advised to keep a 1-2 hours gap between the consumption of herbal medication and western medication.

However, as each individual is different, it would be most ideal to consult both the TCM physician and your western doctor for their opinions on the most appropriate treatment plan for your condition.

What should I do if I feel unwell after consuming the herbal medication?

Stop your medication and consult your TCM physician. You may either call the clinic you had previously visited or contact the clinic which your physician is at on that day.
