The safety of feverfew beyond 4-months' use has not been studied.
Feverfew can also cause allergic reactions, especially in people who are allergic to ragweed, mums, marigolds, or daisies. If you have allergies, be sure to check with your healthcare provider before taking feverfew.
Some people chew feverfew instead of swallowing it in a pill. Chewing fresh feverfew leaves can cause mouth sores; swelling of the mouth, tongue, and lips; and loss of taste.
Do not take feverfew if:
- You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
- You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks. Feverfew might increase the risk of bleeding.
