In brief: Herbs are drugs too
Reported side effects include immunosuppression making the user more susceptible to infection and cancer, as well as birth defects and reduced male fertility.
Herbs are drugs just like prescription medications. Unlike prescription drugs herbs are unregulated, have inconstant ingredients, variable potency, and unpredictable contaminants. Their side-effects are rarely reported.

In brief: Thunder God Vine
This one (the leaf & root part) is often used for rheumatoid arthritis, & some research shows helpful effect.
However, in some it can also cause gastrointestinal (GI) upset, diarrhea, headache, and hair loss. Also some reports of depressed immune function, plus infertility, lymphocyte suppression, menstrual changes, amenorrhea, and skin reactions. If using for >5years, may decrease bone minerals.
