Samples of Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan pills tested by the TGA have been found to contain levels of aconitum alkaloids that are higher than the limit permitted for a listed medicine. These substances can pose an unacceptable risk to health.

Aconitum alkaloids are toxic to humans. Poisoning with these compounds may affect the heart, the nervous system and the gastrointestinal system. Children are particularly at risk, as toxicity can occur at normal doses of Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan pills. An accidental overdose could be fatal in a small child.
