Precautions

 

  • Allergy: Avoid cat's claw if you're allergic to it or its components (parts).
  • Autoimmune conditions: There are no studies examining the effect of cat's claw on autoimmune conditions, specifically. However, cat's claw has many medication interactions. Caution should be applied in supplementing cat's claw for individuals who are immunocompromised.
  • Pregnancy: Studies on cat's claw and its potential effects on pregnancy have been conducted only with mouse models and human tissue samples. No studies have been conducted on pregnant people. Consult your healthcare provider before taking cat's claw.
  • Breastfeeding: No studies have examined the safety of cat's claw supplementation when breastfeeding. Consult your healthcare provider before incorporating cat's claw into your care.
  • Children: There are few studies examining cat's claw usage for children. Of those, studies have only been conducted on topical (on the skin) uses rather than internal preparation. Please consult your child's healthcare provider before including cat's claw in their care.
  • Serotonin syndrome: Cat's claw has been indicated in at least one case of serotonin syndrome. It is believed that one of the active ingredients in cat's claw may increase serotonin levels in the blood. This can be dangerous for anyone taking prescribed medicine that is also meant to increase serotonin in the blood (such as SSRIs/anti depressants).
