Medication incompatibilities with herbal remedies, Dietary supplements, primary care items, and other pharmacy goods, can develop critical adverse reactions and comorbidities that shall increase the mortality rate in patients. In pharmacology, Incompatible medications can be interactions, duplications, contraindications or all between the medication ingredients with other medications or pharmacy goods.
