Brief Answer: No know adverse effects on limited duration of use Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Panax ginseng is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth for most adults when used for less than 3 months. It is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken long-term. Researchers think it may have some hormone-like effects that could be harmful with prolonged use. Local application has limited interaction with other drugs as very minimal concentration enters into blood. As such no know interactions noted on use for limited duration. Hope this helps you. Regards
