Dental Emergencies Not including facial fractures, there are generally two major categories of dental emergen- cies: toothaches with associated abscesses and avulsed (knocked-out) teeth. Most toothaches may be managed with antibiotics (usually penicillin-V 500 mg, q6h) and anal- gesics until proper dental attention can be obtained. These patients should be held for observation with special attention to maintaining the airway until a dental consult can be obtained. Infraorbital infections can lead to a cavernous sinus throm- bosis if allowed to progress. The best treat- ment is to reposition the displaced tooth back in the socket within 30 min or as soon as pos- sible.

Ann Intern Med 1997; 127:61–9 SECTION I: THE THERAPIES 2 Botanicals—quality, efficacy, safety and drug interactions Amala Soumyanath (née Raman) Complementary Therapies in Neurology: An Evidence-Based Approach Edited by Barry S. Oken ISBN 1-84214-200-3 Copyright © 2004 by The Parthenon Publishing Group, London The use of botanical health products (herbal products), sold as dietary supplements, is 1 becoming a common phenomenon in Western society. In a 2002 study, total sales of dietary supplements in the USA were estimated at US$17 billion and annual sales in the nutritional market are estimated to grow in the 6% range for the next few years, although the increase in the herbal products category may be more modest. Retail channels accounted for 85% of sales, suggesting that the intervention of a complementary or alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner is uncommon in the use of botanical products by consumers. The most common means of acquiring these products was by self-selection from commercial outlets. About 19% of patients taking prescription medicines were concurrently using herbal products or megavitamins, but only 40% of patients taking these alternative therapies disclosed this fact to their physician. The continued and increasing use of botanical products, often alongside conventional treatments, and without the involvement or knowledge of a health-care professional, requires us to examine their potential efficacy in treating disease, and the likely risks, i. This article examines the unique nature of botanical products, quality control issues, their potential use in conditions involving the nervous system and the factors that may compromise or promote their safety and efficacy. Botanical products are derived from plant sources and may be presented in a number of different forms. They may be obtained via a CAM practitioner, or bought in shops Botanicals—quality, efficacy, safety and drug interactions 13 selling botanical products. They may be packaged either in loose powder form or in tea-bags for making infusions, or may be put into conventional dosage forms such as capsules or tablets. These range from simple tinctures made with aqueous ethanol, to more complex solvent extraction processes involving other organic solvents or mixtures (methanol, acetone), water or supercritical carbon dioxide. The type of solvent and extraction conditions used will govern the actual components that are 3 extracted, and this can lead to variability between products made from the same herb. Different solvent extracts will have divergent, but probably overlapping, chemical profiles. They have the advantage of not supporting microbial growth and can be consumed directly; the amounts of ethanol involved are non-toxic. Tinctures can also be converted into alcohol-free glycerites, where the alcohol is removed by distillation and replaced with glycerin and flavorings to make a more palatable product, which nevertheless contains the same plant constituents as the original tincture. Where solvents other than ethanol or water are used, it is important to remove the solvent completely, and ensure the absence of any toxic solvent residues. Dry extracts have the advantage of being concentrated forms of the herb, and are suitable for making more conveniently sized capsules and tablets for consumers. All extracts, whether wet or dry, will contain a narrower range of phytochemicals and in different relative proportions than the original herb. This is an important consideration when trying to compare the traditional uses and safety profile of an herb to that of a modern extract-based preparation. The following plant-derived medicinal agents would not be considered as botanical products, as they consist of single chemical entities (SCE) and can be regarded as conventional drugs: (1) SCE isolated from a plant, e. REGULATION OF BOTANICAL PRODUCTS IN THE USA An important factor which may compromise the safety and efficacy of individual botanical products is the level of regulation governing their manufacture and supply in the USA. While there is substantial legislation associated with conventional medicinal products, such as the requirement for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) registration Complementary therapies in neurology 14 and guidelines on good manufacturing practice (GMP), the vast majority of botanical products are not marketed as medicines and such regulations do not apply. Manufacturers are responsible for the veracity of health claims made on the label, but there is no requirement for any 5 supporting evidence of efficacy to be submitted to the FDA. Indeed, clinical trials on botanical products, if performed at all, usually occur after they have been marketed, and 6 the FDA requires reporting only of adverse events. In terms of safety, a dietary supplement is deemed unsafe if it presents a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury under the conditions of use on the label. There are some constraints on the claims that can be made for a product and all new product labels should be submitted to the FDA.
