A safe and effective kava dosage has not yet been established. The available dosing information for the herbal supplement is obtained from clinical studies and practical experience with the supplement. Most studies for treating anxiety used kava doses of 100 mg of a kava extract. Since there is some concern that kava can cause liver damage, people with liver problems should not take the supplement.
- Since the manufacturing of supplements (such as kava) is not closely regulated, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer for kava supplements. Your pharmacist can help you choose a reputable manufacturer.
- If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, it is probably a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before taking kava.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or kava dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
