Eleuthero is generally considered by most herbalists in the United States to be milder in activity than the more stimulating root of Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng). There at least two studies in which it is recommended that eleuthero not be given to persons with a blood pressure in excess of 180/90 mm Hg. Presumably, this information prompted the Commission to note this possible adverse effect in some people. However, the glycosides contained in eleuthero have been shown to lower blood pressure.
Note:Eleuthero is different from both American ginseng and Panax ginseng. They are not interchangeable.
Reported side effects have been minimal with use of eleuthero. Mild, transient diarrhea has been reported in a very small number of users.

Toxicity studies in animals have demonstrated that Siberian ginseng extracts are virtually nontoxic.The LD50 (50 percent lethal dose) of the 33 percent ethanol extract of Siberian ginseng is 14.5 milliliters per kilogram in mice and greater than 20.0 milliliters per kilogram, and no long-term toxicity was observed in rats administered the 33 percent ethanol extract of Siberian ginseng at a daily dose of 5.0 milliliters per kilogram2 In human studies it was demonstrated that Siberian ginseng extracts (33 percent ethanol) are extremely well tolerated and side effects are quite infrequent. However, side effects often reported at higher dosages (4.56 milliliters three times daily) include insomnia, irritability, melancholy, and anxiety. Individuals with rheumatic heart disease have reported pericardial pain, headaches, palpitations, and elevations in blood pressure following the administration of Siberian ginseng.
