  • Feelings of a rapidly or forcefully beating heart (known as heart palpitations)

Final Thoughts on Side Effects of Ginkgo

It is possible that you may experience some or none of these ginkgo side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking ginkgo, or if you experience something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of ginkgo, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
