Potential Neem Side Effects in Children

Neem seems to be fairly toxic to children. There have been reports of very serious, sometimes immediate neem side effects in children. These reported side effects include:
  • Vomiting
  • Loose stools
  • Drowsiness
  • Overly acidic blood
  • Anemia
  • High levels of white blood cells
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Coma
  • Swelling in the brain
  • Loss of life.

Final Thoughts on Neem Side Effects

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the neem side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for you to know beforehand if you will experience side effects. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking neem or if something "just does not seem right" during treatment. While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
