PAREIRA Side Effects & Safety
There isn’t enough information to know if pareira might be safe or what side effects may occur.
Pareira contains tubocurarine, an ingredient in modern intravenous (IV) anesthetics used to block nerve signals and paralyze muscles. However, very little, if any, of the tubocurarine in pareira gets absorbed into the body when taken by mouth. Some people might try to inject pareira into the bloodstream, but this is UNSAFE.
Special Precautions & Warnings:Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It’s UNSAFE to use pareira if you are pregnant. It might start your menstrual period and cause a miscarriage.
It’s also best to avoid pareira if you are breast-feeding. Not enough is known about how it might affect the nursing infant.
The appropriate dose of pareira depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for pareira. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
