Dear Interlude

You should not use Black Cohosh if you are allergic to aspirin. If you are on the pill or HRT you need to use the product only under the guidance of a Healthcare Professional.

If you are going to use it long term, it is recommended to take a one month break from treatment every six months.

Kind regards.
