People use raspberry ketone for obesity, hair loss, male pattern baldness, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Raspberry ketone is commonly consumed in foods. But there isn't enough reliable information to know if raspberry ketone is safe to use as medicine when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Warfarin (Coumadin) interacts with RASPBERRY KETONE
Warfarin is used to thin the blood and prevent blood clots. Raspberry ketone might reduce the effects of warfarin, which could increase the risk for blood clots. If you take warfarin, talk with your healthcare provider before taking raspberry ketone.
Stimulant drugs interacts with RASPBERRY KETONE
Stimulants, such as amphetamines and cocaine, speed up the nervous system. By speeding up the nervous system, stimulant medications can increase blood pressure and speed up the heartbeat. Raspberry ketone might also speed up the nervous system. Taking raspberry ketone along with stimulant drugs might cause serious problems including increased heart rate and high blood pressure.
