Forget-me-not is an herb. The whole plant is used to make medicine.
Despite safety concerns, people take forget-me-not for lung problems and nosebleeds.
How does it work?
There isn't enough information available to know how forget-me-not might work.
Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...
- Lung problems.
- Other conditions.
Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).
The appropriate dose of forget-me-not depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for forget-me-not. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
