Saw palmetto gave me a sore throat!?

since I started taking saw palmetto last weekend, I developed a sore throat. Only it's not like a normal sore throat, it's as if I swallowed rock and now my throat is swollen! Has this happened to anyone else?

Which brand are you using?
Is it at least helping your acne?

This just goes to show you how different people are. Maybe your sick. Think of something else you may have done. It may not be the Saw Palmetto. Then again you could be allergic to it. I was using the Pharmassure brand for a week and it didn't give me a sore throat at all. I used it last night and I feel great. I suggest you use the Pharmassure or GNC brands. I also think you should go to the doctor and get your throat checked out. Mention that you are using Saw Palmetto.

I just got over a cold. It hurts when I'm swallowing stuff too. Could it have happened from swallowing pills and one of them got stuck?

Maybe, I really couldn't say. I think you would have noticed a pill getting stuck in your throat though. I had the flu/cold and I didn't get over the sore throat for almost a week after the other symptoms. I may switch from Saw Palmetto to zinc soon. Saw Palmetto seems to be creating more oil on my face.

Re: Saw palmetto gave me a sore throat!?

OMG, I have more oil on my face too! I usually have VERY dry skin. I started taking vitamin A months ago and it make the pores on my face smaller, and the Saw Palmetto has made my pores bigger and my face oily. I mean, it is winter, I should be glad my face isn't dry anymore. But I don't know how long I can stand the big pores...

Yeah, no more Saw Palmetto for me. I think it was making my face oily. When I exercised I felt a ton of oil coming out of my pores. I am just going to chill and use my current regimen, and change my diet. I have a bad diet and I know some foods are causing flare ups. I also know there are foods that can benefit acne. I am going to include a lot more olive oil, tomato juice, green vegetables, fruits, and water.
