Nearly all contraindications to DGL are due to pseudohyperaldosteronism or mineralocorticoid excess, effects which appear to be primarily due to glycyrrhizic acid. Although there are no apparent contraindications for DGL, patients with hypertension, congestive heart failure and hypokalemia should be monitored carefully. The safety of DGL in pregnancy and breastfeeding is unknown and should be used with caution. Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Keep out of reach of children.
No known drug interactions. Licorice influences the activity of several cytochrome enzymes, and reduces warfarin activity in animal models, likely due to glycyrrhizic acid activity. Thus DGL use should be carefully monitored in these patients.
