Harpagophyto root has shown very low toxicity. The administration of repeated doses (subacute toxicity) does not show significant results of toxicity or hepatotoxicity. Tolerability tests indicate a low incidence of adverse effects and these are mild, mainly gastrointestinal (laxative effect). However, Harpagophyto should be used with caution in case of gastric or duodenal ulcer, pregnancy, lactation and in bile duct obstruction. It can also interact with anticoagulant drugs and those used in cardiovascular conditions such as arrhythmias or arterial hypertension.
