    Also-don't use licorice if you're pregnant or have high blood pressure.

    its not really an herb but grapefruit can have nasty reactions with certain medications. So use with caution if your doing potion work that contains grapefruit.
    I was born with a label.
    As I grew they tagged me again.
    I'm lucky...
    I see through all the labels.

    Generally on perscribed medicines, but also wanting any so called side effects, or herbs that dont mix together.

    So far I have -

    St Johns Wort
    Enchicea
    Milk Thisle
    Any -- ANY -- medicinal herb can have adverse effects. The list of side-effects, contraindications, and synergistic reactions is very large. There -are- books available out there which list known side effects/contraindications/interactions, and you can get 'em at your local Borders or what-have-you pretty cheap.

    Unless, of course, this is the effect that you're hoping for.

    Pennyroyal should be avoided anyway, unless you know exactly what you are doing, as it is highly poisonous.
