If your doctor advises you to drink liquorice tea, ask her if you should choose a type with or without glycyrrhizin. Liquorice root products such as liquorice tea should not be used for a prolonged period of time as they can have side effects and interact with prescription medications. Liquorice teas should never be given to young children, infants or toddlers.
