Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Forskolin is made from the root of a plant in the mint family. The plant grows in Nepal, India, and Thailand. It has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.

Some negative reactions to forskolin have been reported. These include upper respiratory tract irritation, cough, tremor, and restlessness when inhaled and
stinging of the eyes and enlarging of the blood vessels in the eyes and headache.

People taking blood thinners or anti-platelet drugs should not take forskolin. Also, certain high blood pressure drugs may interact with forskolin, including:
Calcium channel blockers
