黄芪的副作用

众所周知,中药的副作用更要比西药小得多,但是如果中药使用不当的话,也会产生一定的副作用。黄芪是一种常见的中药,在使用的过程中,要注意使用方法以及配伍禁忌,否则黄芪的副作用会加重病情。

1、首先,食用黄芪之后容易上火,出现诸如面色潮红、口感舌燥的症状。

3、如有口咽干燥、腰酸腰痛、手心脚心发热、失眠多梦盗汗等阴虚表现,不能使用黄芪。因为黄芪性质微温,阴虚患者使用之后会助热,容易伤阴动血。

4、如果身上有疮,也不能使用黄芪,因为有疮则意味着身上有热毒,性质微温的黄芪容易滞邪,加重病情。

5、如果必须要使用黄芪,则需要与其他中药配伍,阴虚患者需要搭配麦冬、熟地、玉竹、生地、天冬、玄参等,这些中药有养阴的作用;湿热患者需要搭配茵陈、黄连、黄芩等,这些中药有清利湿热的作用;身上有热毒的患者则要搭配败酱草、黄连、大黄、栀子等,这些中药具有清热解毒的功效。

6、此外,使用黄芪的时候一定不能用量太大,在发热、阴气不足、身体疼痛的时候要谨慎使用。
