People who are sensitive to mint should probably avoid ingesting agastache rugosa because it may have the same effect. Tea is usually prescribed using the dried flowers and leaves of the plant. It is relatively safe for long-term use. A medical professional, however, should be consulted if the herb is taken in high doses.

It has been suggested that, in high doses, agastache rugosa may be useful in preventing and alleviating viral conditions, like the cold or influenza. The carminative effects of the plant can also help settle an upset stomach.
