Black Cohosh Precautions

Do not take when pregnant or breast feeding. Black cohosh contains small amounts of salicylic acid, so people with allergies to aspirin or salicylates should avoid black cohosh. Avoid black cohosh if you have breast cancer, especially if you are receiving treatment for breast cancer (eg docetaxel, doxorubicin, cisplatin), as it interferes with the medication.

Herbs rich in saponins like black cohosh can cause gastrointestinal upset or reflux in sensitive people.
