Herbal drugs are made of pharmacologically effective constituents, that can interact with anesthesia drugs that risk the life of the patients in question. In addition, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of herbal drugs are yet to be fully understood thus still needs more study.

The aim of this article is to provide a mini-review on herb–anesthesia drug interactions Keywords: Anesthesia drug Herbal drugs Pharmacokinetics Pharmacodynamics
