Make sure to tell your healthcare provider if you develop any side effects that you think may be related to astragalus. Your healthcare provider will likely be interested in this and may even want to report such side effects to a medical journal, especially if the adverse effects are particularly serious or interesting.
You should also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right" during treatment. While it may not be related to astragalus, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
