Hello Rizz, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Herbal medicines are basically more minimal side effects compared with drugs that are not made from herbs.
Even so, the consumption of any medicines including herbal medicines is still recommended to be in accordance with the recommended dosage of use and not to exceed the daily dose limit of the drug. If the dose adjustment is needed, it must be based on the doctor's examination and recommendation.
Therefore, as long as you take the drug it is highly recommended to continue to follow the recommended dosage of the drug according to what is on the package or in accordance with the advice of the doctor who is treating you at this time.
If you accidentally consume the drug in excess then it is advisable to check yourself further to the doctor for further evaluation so that you can determine what therapy should be given.
I hope this helps.
