Ashwagandha side effects:
Significant ashwagandha side effects have not yet been reported in the medical literature, but long term studies are not yet available. Nevertheless, it is best to take breaks from use, for instance, one can take a week off each month or take the herb 3 or 4 times a week as opposed to daily. We suggest keeping your ashwagandha dose to a maximum of 500 mg a few times a week although for short term you can use it at a higher dosage. It is not clear how it influences blood pressure, the adrenal glands, testosterone or cortisol levels.
High doses of this herb could stimulate thyroid hormone release but research is still early and unclear.

Combining with other herbs
Q. Can I take ashwaganda supplement along with ginseng?
A. Taking too many herbs along with ashwagandha may lead to a feeling of being stimulated too much. It is best to be cautious when combining several herbs and to use low amounts.
Q. Can bacopa monniera pills be taken together with ashwagandha pills? What about Mind Power Rx?
A. In low dosages, yes. We suggest first taking each one by itself. Take a bacopa pill for a few days, take a break for a couple of days, then take ashwagandha pills for a few days. If you decide to combine both herbal supplements, take half a pill of each. This applies to Mind Power Rx, too.
Stress reduction, relaxation, tension relief
Q. Does ashwagandha herb cause a feeling of relaxation?
A. In small doses it can. In high dosages, such as more than 500 mg or 1000 mg, the relaxation may be eclipsed by a feeling of restlessness. You may consider at first using one ashwagandha extract 500 mg capsule. If you are taking a regular pill that is not a concentrated extract, then 500 mg is a good starting dose.
Dietary restrictions, does it lead to weight loss?
Q. Since ashwagandha root is an Ayurvedic herb, are there any dietary restrictions when taking it? I am from India, and I remember that whenever we took Ayurvedic medication, certain foods were to be avoided. Also, do people lose weight on it?
A. There are no dietary restrictions that we know of while taking an ashwagandha supplement. We are not aware of weight loss studies.
When to take, what time of day
Q. What is the best time to take ashwagandha supplements, on an empty stomach, or during and/or after meals. I also found that ashwagandha makes you sort of sleepy during the day time.
A. Most herbs are better absorbed on an empty stomach. In some people, certain preparations of ashwagandha can lead to sleepiness or a very relaxed feeling. For those who are tense and anxious, and hyper alert, ashwagandha can be taken during the day. For others, ashwagandha is best taken in the evening a few hours before sleep. The ashwagandha dosage could make a difference, too. There are many ashwagandha products on the market, Some are regular powders, others are concentrated extracts. Each product will have its own different effect so you may need to find out what kind of effect the particular ashwagandha product you buy has on you. We suggest your very first time that you take half a capsule and then experiment with different amounts to see how it makes you feel.
It is sometimes seen spelled as aswagandha and ashwaganda.
Timing of ashwagandha dose - Some people find taking an ashwagandha capsule with food works better for them, others like to take it a few minutes before eating, and still others like to take the pill half an hour or an hour before a meal. The best way to find out how it works for you is by trial and error. Try it at different times of the day to see which works for you. Some people find it slightly sedating and prefer it in the early evening, others find it okay to take it daytime.
