Potential Side Effects of Arrowroot
As with any herbal remedy, caution should be exercised when taking arrowroot. While a doctor should always be consulted before using herbal remedies, use special caution before giving it to children, pregnant or nursing mothers, or anyone with kidney or liver disease. If considering arrowroot for an infant formula, consult the child’s pediatrician first and monitor closely for allergic reactions. There are no known side effects linked to arrowroot, and it is not known to have any adverse interactions with drugs or chemicals in food. When using arrowroot to alleviate diarrhea, it should not be taken with any other medication or supplement for diarrhea, as this may lead to constipation.
