Cautions

  • Theoretically, echinacea may interfere with drugs that are purposely used to suppress the immune system such as those like cyclophosphamide that are used in patients who have had organ transplants to prevent the immune system from rejecting the transplanted organ.
  • Echinacea should not be used by people with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or human-immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Echinacea use may lead to stimulation of viral replication. Until more research is done, most experts recommend not using echinacea effects in HIV infection.
  • Allergic reactions have been reported in people who are allergic to other members of plants in the Compositae family (daisy, ragweed, marigolds, etc.)
  • People with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis should avoid long-term use of echinacea.
