How effective is schisandra?

ANSWER

Experts don't know if schisandra is effective at treating any conditions. Be sure to tell your doctor about any you're taking, even if they're natural. That way, your doctor can check on any potential side effects or interactions with medications or foods. He or she can let you know if the supplement might raise your risks.
