Side-effects and Cautions:

Use with caution during pregnancy or lactation. People vary greatly in their response to ginseng, in terms of how it affects them and how long it takes for effects to be realized. Some people find that ginseng is too stimulating, for others it has no stimulating effects. Some notice effects right away, others notice them after a few days of consistent use.
