Take Supplements For More Than 4 Weeks, Is That Safe?
Tonight, I want to ask, I bought a drug or a supplement of ginkgo biloba which is produced from Kalbe, in its absence it cannot be more than 4 weeks of use. Is it dangerous for me if I use it for more than 4 weeks? I used the medicine to improve my memory and concentration. Is it safe? Thank you.
Good evening Ellyza, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Based on existing studies regarding the effects of giving ginkgo biloba extract supplements, these supplements are generally quite safe for long-term consumption, but there is no exact time on how long this supplement may be used, and there is no exact dose regarding use this supplement.
Although consumption of this supplement is said to be safe enough to be used in the long run, it is also necessary to know that the use of this supplement can increase the chance of bleeding if taken regularly. Other side effects that may also be caused by ginkgo biloba supplementation are headache, digestive disorders and allergic reactions.
In addition to side effects that may be caused, this supplement can also interact with certain drugs and can also have a negative impact on some medical conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy or can also affect fertility disorders. Therefore, before you decide to use the supplement, it is advisable to consult with your doctor first to assess whether your current condition is possible and to take the supplement.
