Adverse Reactions

As with numerous pharmaceutical sedatives, next morning somnolence is a possible side-effect of therapy; however, evidence from two human studies suggests this is not associated with valerian use (Gerhard et al 1996, Kuhlmann et al 1999).

Vivid dreams were reported in one study; however, this is considered rare by clinicians (Wheatley 2001).

Paradoxical effects have been observed in clinical practice; however, this also appears to be rare (Mills & Bone 2000).

Occasionally, headache and gastrointestinal symptoms have been reported (Ernst 2001).
