Recent independant research on Echinaforce has indicated that long-term use is perfectly safe. Echinacea is now seen as an immodulator, ie it balances immune function rather than 'stimulating' it. Therefore, if your immune system is under par it will make it work more efficiently at seeking out and destroying pathogens but it will also make sure that your immune system does not go into overdrive whilst fighting infection. Bad cold and flu symptoms are not caused by the bug but by your immune system's response to the bug. Echinacea has been shown to reduce the immune system's overdrive, therefore although you still may get the flu your symptoms will not be as bad as usual) A good quality Echinacea product will help to fight colds, flu and upper respiratory tract infections and taken all winter can help to prevent the onset of infections.
