Sida cordifolia when used excessively can cause ephedrine related side effects like insomnia, anxiety, nervousness, increase in blood pressure, memory loss or even stroke. Ephedrine coupled with caffeine can prove fatal. Patients subjected to IOC drug testing, using MAO inhibitor medication (anti-depressants), having high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid or prostate condition along with pregnant or lactating women should not take this herb except under expert guidance.

The plant is used in Brazilian folk medicine for the treatment of inflammation of the oral mucosa, blennorrhea, asthmatic bronchitis and nasal congestion.

It is also used as a healing herb in many parts of Africa for various ailments, particularly for respiratory problems.

Sida cordifolia has been investigated as an anti-inflammatory, for preventing cell proliferation,  and for encouraging liver re-growth.

Side Effects:

Country mallow is likely unsafe for any use. Sida cordifolia contains ephedrine. Sida cordifolia is banned in the US due to safety concerns. Another herb that contains ephedrine called ephedra is linked to high blood pressure, heart attacks, muscle disorders, seizures, strokes, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness, and death. Sida cordifolia might also cause these side effects.

Sida cordifolia might also cause dizziness, restlessness, irritability, insomnia, headache, lack of appetite, nausea, vomiting, flushing, tingling, difficulty urinating, and pounding heartbeat.

Do not use Sida cordifolia with other stimulants such as caffeine. This might increase the chance of having side effects, including life-threatening ones. Sources of caffeine include coffee, tea, kola nut, guarana, and mate.

Avoid usage during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
