Overdose: severe overdose of Ginseng tincture can possibly lead to increased dose-related side effects.

Drug interactions: use with caution alongside with antidiabetic drugs (because of the increased hypoglycemic effect) and with MAOIs. Simultaneous application of the tincture with loop diuretics increases the risk of developing resistance to them.
