Do NOT take this formula if you are on treatment! It
contains Bupleurum root, which interacts with interferon and
has caused deaths. It is a great Chinese herb if you are NOT
on treatment though. If you have high blood pressure or
portal hypertension you should be very cautious with this
formula (or just avoid) due to the Licorice root.
