Within the recommended dosage range EPO is a safe supplement with very few adverse effects reported. Nausea, stomach pain and headache can occur if taken on an empty stomach and diarrhoea may occur at high dosages, indicating the need to reduce intake. EPO is contraindicated for anyone with epilepsy because GLA increases the body’s prostaglandin levels. Increased levels of prostaglandins lower the threshold for seizures. Anyone taking blood thinning drugs such as warfarin or aspirin should not take EPO, due to the anti-clotting action of prostaglandins. If you take any type of medical drug it’s important to consult your health practitioner about possible drug interactions before supplementing with EPO.
