In our society, indigenous drugs are, not only used, but sometimes overused and often their use is combined with prescription chemical drugs. On the other hand, the physicians do not know about the concurrent use of indigenous drugs with prescription drugs. Sometimes these factors can lead to either, a therapeutic failure or, a drug interaction or, an accentuation of the known toxicities of the chemical prescription drugs. it is essential to advise the diabetic patients on oral hypoglycemic drugs to avoid the unsupervised concurrent self-treatment with these indigenous drugs to prevent hypoglycemia. It is also worthwhile to keep in view that proper monitoring of Ayurvedic and allopathic drugs have not become possible, so far. In present study, suggestion of proposing Ayurvedic Pharmacoepidemiology as a New Discipline seems to be defensible and with its proper functioning the above objectives can be achieved.
