Dosage of Echinaforce® tablets: Adults, elderly and children over 12 years: Two tablets, 2 to 3 times daily. There is no evidence to suggest that using any Echinacea product during pregnancy or breastfeeding will be harmful to the unborn or newborn child. However, as only a few scientific studies have been done on the use of the herb during these stages of life, the UK Department of Health considers that the benefits of using Echinacea in these situations are outweighed by the risks. Hence. it does not recommend using Echinacea in pregnant or breastfeeding women.Do not take more than the recommended dose. Taking too much (overdose) is unlikely to be harmful.
