Contraindications: Cardiovascular-related disorders such as high blood pressure, potassium deficiency (hypokalemia), impaired kidney or liver functions, cirrhosis of the liver, and pregnancy.
Interactions: Potassium loss may occur when taking licorice root tea at the same time as other drugs, such as thiazide- and loop-diuretics. Potassium loss, resulting from excessive use of licorice root, may increase the action of cardiac glycosides and interact with antiarrhythmic drugs.
Pregnancy and lactation: Not to be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding unless directed by your pre- or post-natal healthcare provider.
Side effects: Prolonged use of excessive doses may lead to mineralocorticoid effects in the form of electrolyte imbalance (sodium retention and potassium loss) accompanied by hypertension, edema and suppression of the renin-angiotensinaldosterone system. In rare cases, hypokalemic myopathy may occur.
