    Does slippery elm have side effects?
    Though slippery elm is usually well-tolerated, some supplements containing this herb may trigger side effects in some people, such as nausea, increased bowel movements, frequent urination, swollen glands, skin blemishes, flu-like symptoms and slight headaches.

    Because it coats the digestive tract, it may slow down the absorption of other drugs or herbs. To prevent drug interactions, it may be best to take slippery elm two hours before or after other herbs or medications you may be taking.

    Slippery elm should only be given to children under the supervision of a knowledgeable practitioner.

    Herbal medicines can trigger allergic reactions, including skin rashes, among people who are sensitive to their effects. Therefore, use caution and check with your health care provider, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or using other medications.

    Is it safe to take slippery elm every day? Like other herbs, it’s best to take breaks from using it periodically. Try taking it for several weeks, then taking several weeks off before starting again if necessary.
