Inhoud: An epidemiological study was carried out to verify the use of medicinal plants and herbal medicines by HIV-infected patients attended at Hospital Universitário de Brasília (HUB), and to evaluate the potential pharmacological interactions between prescribed antiretroviral medicines and such herbal preparations. A questionnaire was elaborated containing questions on the socio-demographic characteristics, time of diagnosis, how the patient discovered his disease, time of treatment with antiretroviral medicines, and the most frequent adverse effects, according to the patient. From the 128 interviewed patients, 52.3% claimed to be medicinal plants and/or herbal medicines users. Among patients using medicinal plant and/or herbal medicines, 77% did not inform the medical staff about this consumption practice. The results were higher than others similar reports. And several of the mentioned medicinal plants/ herbal medicine can potentially present important pharmacological interactions with anti-retroviral pharmacotherapy usually prescribed to the interviewed patients.
