Abstract

Design: This involves an in-depth study of pharmacovigilance of herbal drugs from the sources such as PubMed, Google Scholar, websites etc. and also classical Ayurvedic Granthas like Charaka Samhita, Sushrutha Samhita, Ashtanga Hridaya and Dravyaguna Vijnana etc

Observations: Knowledge of Aushadha Dravya with respect to its Nama (nomenclature), Rupa (morphology), Guna (qualities of the drug) includes all the factors that prevents adverse drug reactions.

Conclusion: The integration including classical methods of safety assessment tools and modern technology together if adopted, the general notion of public i.e., herbal drugs are safe can be made true. Thus, even a poisonous drug can be used in therapeutics just like ambrosia for a specific diseased condition without any adverse effect as told in Ayurveda
