  • Valerian is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mares, or horses/ponies who suffer from low blood pressure. Uninterrupted usage of valerian is not recommended; it is advisable to take a break of a week after two or three weeks and then restart.

Valerian should be stopped about one week before surgery as it may interact with anaesthesia.
