Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of brickellia during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Diabetes: Developing research in animals suggests that some chemicals in brickellia might be able to lower blood sugar.
