Rhodiola Rosea side effects
Rhodiola Rosea is generally considered non-toxic and safe, with very few side effects reported. However, when taken in considerably higher-than-recommended doses, some mild adverse effects such as dry mouth, nausea, upset stomach, headache, insomnia, and weight loss, may be observed.
Also, taking Rhodiola Rosea in conjunction with MAOI medicine may cause serotonin syndrome, which can be life-threatening.
