How does Agrimony work?

Agrimony contains chemicals called tannins, which are thought to help conditions such as diarrhea.

Are there safety concerns?

Agrimony is POSSIBLY SAFE for most adults when used short-term. But large amounts of agrimony are POSSIBLY UNSAFE because agrimony contains chemicals called tannins.

Agrimony can make some people's skin extra sensitive to sunlight and more likely to burn.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Agrimony is POSSIBLY UNSAFE during pregnancy because it might affect the menstrual cycle.

There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking agrimony if you are breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Diabetes: Agrimony might lower blood sugar levels. People with diabetes should monitor their blood glucose levels closely. If you have diabetes, it's best to check with your healthcare provider before starting agrimony.

Surgery: Agrimony might affect blood sugar levels, so there is a concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using agrimony at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
