Black mulberry may interfere with the way the body processes certain herbs and supplements using the liver's cytochrome P450 enzyme system. As a result, the levels of these drugs may be increased in the blood in the short-term, causing increased effects or potentially serious adverse reactions, or decreased in the blood in the long-term, which may reduce the intended effects. Black mulberry may alter blood sugar levels. Caution is advised in patients with diabetes or in those taking herbs and supplements that may also alter blood sugar levels.
Black mulberry may increase the amount of drowsiness caused by some herbs or supplements, such as chamomile. Caution is advised while driving or operating machinery.
