Herbal interactions and pharmaceutical cocktails

Does anyone know of an online Chinese medicine herbal reference with pharmacological interactions?

Specifically looking for Sheng Di interactions with pharmaceutical meds.

I don’t have a reference for you, but offhand I would think that Di Huang / Rehmannia (whether shou or sheng) is low on the list of herbs with problematic drug interaction potential: it’s essentially a food grade herb, which means low toxicity in the first place, and seems to work primarily through nourishing the body. Biggest concern may be digestion, if they’re taking anything that has GI side effects or if they just have a less robust SP/ST to begin with.

Not exactly sure if it’s what you’re asking for, but there’s the Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Centre Database for herbs and Evergreen has a page with Drugs of Higher Risk of Interaction with herbs
