Possible worsening and increased risk of gastric bleeding.- [COAGULATION ALTERATIONS], or patients treated with oral anticoagulants. It could increase the risk of bleeding.

- [HEPATOPATHY]. Cases of elevations in transaminases have been reported, although it has not been possible to directly relate this to pelargonium. It is recommended to use with caution in patients with liver diseases, avoiding it in severe cases (see Contraindications). It is recommended to periodically monitor transaminase levels, and in case of a significant and unjustified increase, suspend treatment.- History of peptic ulcer. Pelargonium has been linked to digestive problems such as gastric hyperacidity and stomach pain. In addition, it must be taken into account that it has a certain capacity to alter coagulation. In patients who have suffered from a peptic ulcer in the past, they could favor the appearance of a new erosion, with a greater probability of gastric bleeding. Therefore, extreme caution is advised in these patients. If symptoms of gastroduodenal erosion are observed, such as nausea, vomiting, gastric hyperacidity or pain in the epigastric area, it is recommended to suspend the administration of harpagofito.- [RESPIRATORY INFECTION]. It could mask symptoms of respiratory infections. If the patient describes fever, dyspnea or purulent sputum, it is recommended to reevaluate the diagnosis.

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women, so the use of pelargonium during pregnancy is only accepted in the event that there are no safer therapeutic alternatives, the benefits outweigh the possible risks.

It is unknown whether pelargonium components are excreted with breast milk, and the possible consequences this could have for the nursing infant. It is advisable to stop breastfeeding or avoid its use during breastfeeding.

Safety and efficacy have not been evaluated in children under 12 years of age (tablets) or 2 years of age (oral drops), so it is recommended to avoid its use.
