I was checking Red Root in Buhner's book and he says there are no side affects to note, but it is a coagulant so if you are on any medication for that either for coagulation or anti coagulation.
Also do not take if pregnant.
His dosage suggestions are 30-90 drops 4x day. If in acute conditions, make that 1 tsp to 6x daily.
As with most herbs, move up in dosage slowly for 3-4 days so if herx happens, back down on dosage.
Also, start with one new herb at a time so you know what is causing the herx if it happens. I like to get up to half dosage before I add in something new. But that's just chicken me.
