Special Precautions and Warnings
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: When taken by mouth, winter savory is safe in the amounts commonly found in food. But there isn't enough information to know if it is safe in the larger amounts that are used as medicine or when used on the skin. Stay on the safe side and stick to food amounts if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Lithium interacts with WINTER SAVORY
Winter savory might have an effect like a water pill or "diuretic." Taking winter savory might decrease how well the body gets rid of lithium. This could increase how much lithium is in the body and result in serious side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are taking lithium. Your lithium dose might need to be changed.
