In brief: It depends

Menopausal women with hot flashes are the ones who most frequently use black cohosh.
However, those with breast cancer, other hormone-sensitive cancers, kidney transplants, and liver disease possibly should not use this herb. Please consult with your own physician about your personal situation. For more info: http://ods.Od.Nih.Gov/factsheets/blackcohosh-healthprofessional/.
